      I don't agree. For me (Czech) he was one of the best understandable speakers.

      Hi robertd, I am sorry you are having trouble with my accent, honestly I have not heard the accent feedback before but I am really happy to rectify anything that you think might help. Could you please send me an email at vishal.joshi@Microsoft.com on the portions which you found unclear. Also I am open to a phone chat at 425-705-2031 if you like. Hi Jan/Ben, Thanks for the kind words, we also received several emails and feedback from attendees that they love the talk and WebMatrix 2. We are all very excited. Btw, all viewers should visit http://WebMatrix.com/next, there are free web hosting offers for you there.

      Thanks again Microsoft for everything you've done for us, mostly for free since Dos version 1. Thanks for helping prevent a true tower of Babel in the computing world had you not become the standard. Thanks for your commitment to making the world a better place and not just saying so. Thanks for ploughing so much back and you deserve everything you've been given in return.

      Hi Vishal, great vid. Thanks.
      I'm doing a lot of MVC/Razor/EF/SQLServer stuf for a client. Same client looking at Dynamics AX for worldwide deployment. How useful would WebMatrix be interfacing to AX for bespoke web based presentation (tailored accounting, costing, energy usage type tools etc). Any pointers as to where to look?

      Hi Dave,

          Could you send me an email at Vishal.Joshi@Microsoft.com and we can try to have a further discussion on the exact scenario and where there might be some information around it.

      Thanks, Vishal
