    Meh, here in Durban we have lots of Indians so it's nothing new for me. I am kinda surprised at how expansive your vocabulary is though and how well you pronounce the words.

    Also for some odd reason I was expecting the pitch of your voice to be a fair bit lower.

    Thanks schumi, this video is a bit old, I can pronounce words better and my accent has also changed.
    I was trying to hold it from the sides and my hands were shaking from the cold temperature of the server room.

    I'd say I'll wait for Win9 but somehow I think things will be even worse there.

    Checked 8.
    Let's just say Microsoft will have to pry earlier Windows discs from my dead cold hands. With a crowbar.

    I can see it as a natural upgrade for touch-enabled mobile devices running windows Phone 7, hardly decent for desktops. The normal desktop better be the default, heck even with a oneoff choice during installation or after (like to offer users to check out Metro for a while or sticking with it).

    I used to live in a country south of China a while ago. I'm sure you'll be able to understand what comes out of my mouth... if I decide to open it up. :p

    Looks to me like Microsoft plans to move to touch-enabled interface as default for desktops as well.

    Or something that magically makes Metro more useful with keyboard and mouse.
