Well, maybe he'll be nice and try to lower the price of Xbox One in India-within 50K??:p Apart from that, no special profit to us. Just pride for another Indian joins the rank of hotshot CEOs :doublethumb:

I will just repost Raaabo's FB update regarding this :

Raaabo said:
A Person of Indian Origin (PIO) is an Indian who was smart enough to get the hell out, so why do so many of us want to bask in the glory and be "proud" of the accomplishments of an individual who left India's problems behind?

Yes he WAS an Indian, no he's not going to suddenly say, "Free Lumias to all Indians, and half off on 8.1 and Office!" -- it's a business.

This "pride" you mistakenly feel will only be used to sell more products to you. Economics, pure and simple. Patriotism has no place in the boardrooms of publicly traded companies, allegiance is owed only to shareholders and quarterly reports.

Ah, ofcourse he's still an American, basically. But it does raise the statistics, you know??(Indians on top spots-and all that). This doesn't change my dislike of Microsoft(after Win8 fiasco); nor will any sane person buy a Lumia just because Nadella is the CEO. Sh!t, most people won't even care.

Great news, but no big deal.

I don't know why everyone goes gaga over someone of Indian origin gets a prominent status abroad when those people actually don't really care much about India?
That's very true.I wish i could've liked/+1'd this if there's a button.

This knowledge is good for GK I have no objection for this. But hope the media does not over blows the trumpet!

Otherwise just analyse it like this. A BE, MSCS, MBA (Indian) works 22 years for a company founded by a Harvard drop out student (american) to become its CEO!
