      nice video and nice option to use KD over USB3 and Ethernet Smiley

      But next time use a native English speaking person. The accent made it so hard to understand.

      @MagicAndre1981: I find your accent comment rude, unethical and uncalled for - both speakers have clear diction, good pronunciation and are very easy to understand. IMHO it's much better to have a speaker who knows what he/she is talking about than a speaker with perfect pronunciation.

      I like the new features very much, this is definitely a step in the right direction.

      This is a technical presentation not a talk show. Vocal presentation is perfectly clear.

      The Debugging tools forum is a good place to discuss this further

      Hi folks.. please note the following change:

      do NOT use Bcdedit -set dbgtransport kdusb3.dll
      now that Win8 has shipped that line is not necessary anymore and can cause problems preventing the system from rebooting.
