Have you been to an MS store before? They are pretty nice inside. The workers are generally nice people who actually have a good wealth of knowledge and aren't really pushy or rude.

I say that last bit because near where I live there's a mall with both an Apple Store and a Microsoft Store. In the Apple Store (at least this one) they often don't want to deal with you or show little patience for users. In the Microsoft Store they are just chill and nice. I've been in there several times for various events and such, and never a problem.

I wonder how many people would have lined up if Wayne Gretzky wasn't there. :p

All joking aside, I'm a little surprised that so many people showed up. A crowd of that size for something technology-related is usually associated with a certain fruit. Yes, I'm talking about Apple. Although I'm not a huge fan of Windows 8, it's nice to see a large crowd for Microsoft instead of Apple.

Anyway, I want to check out the Microsoft Store at Yorkdale Mall. I've been meaning to go to the Eaton Centre location but I never got around to it.
