Yeah, many of the locals (especially at NP) will tell you not to throw your money away on Indian IDNs. ;)

Microsoft might be a bit slow on the uptake, but compared with much of America they are still lightening fast!

Time for locals to ask for idn.in(idn) registrations to be instituted, or even better to let Verisign go ahead and alias idn.com :)

BTW, what are there good Hindi translations that equate to com and net?
