I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out that Microsoft paid those people to appear in lines.
Wow, what an ignorant comment. There were at least a couple hundred people in the line at the Microsoft Store in Houston. Everyone there was really excited also, and I don't think it was just because of the free donuts, water, candy, and hot chocolate.

Except they're not called fanatics and they're not crazy. They're just normal people who happened be excited enough for a product to line up for it. You make it seem like it's a rare occurrence for people to do such a thing when it happens quite often (for product launches). It's not like they're going to suffer from serious health issues from waiting in line.
As for the cheering, I think that was a little unnecessary. I'd only do it if someone won something.
Haha, yeah the cheering is unnecessary. They did that at the store I was at too but I'm not one to cheer for nothing either.
