    Yeah, & what tops is the fact that he is a product of a private institute. Not even the reputed REC's or NIT's. Very unusual & very refreshing.

    The Start menu (lack of) cost Steve Ballmer his job. Hope this guy has the wisdom to bring it back.

    Rumors of a Start button on Windows 8.1 got my hopes up, until it turned out to be gimmick that leads you to that chimpanzee intelligence testing program they call "Start screen."

    Right click on window logo (start) on 8.1 gives you plenty of options. But still it is not the same.

    Now, expect the capitation fees / development fees / blah blah fees at Manipal (in all relevant courses) for management quota seats to rise manifolds.

    From what I have heard, Manipal management leaves no opportunity to make a killing & what could be more opportune moment than now. The euphoria would be capitalized (literally) for decades.

    Just imagine if this guy happened to be from some university owned by Arindham Chaudhuri.. You'd never hear the end of it!

    During the mid 90s and early 2000s Manipal had the reputation of being a rich kids/party all the time school(drugs etc), But nowadays I think it's considered a decent univ. I think the earlier reputation was maybe a bit unfair, as all colleges have drugs/alchohol and so on.

    I never missed start menu except for first 5 mins...... Heard they're bringing many features in update 1 for Windows 8.1 and also WP8.1 would be having lots of improvements. Looking forward for WP 8.1 because I freaking love my friend's Lumia 1320, I would be buying 925 if WP8.1 gives me what I want.
