This is great for further democratising the web.
People who are complaining don't realise that the majority of the planet do not understand latin characters. Not only is 'google.com' meaningless, it is illegible.
Up to now, only the educated elite were able to get access. Now every literate person should be able to get online. Regardless of whether they speak arabic, chinese, russian, afghan, etc.
It'll take a little while to get used to seeing these 'weird' domain names. Get used it!
What I don't understand is why it's just the TLD that's changing, why not everything after www.?
Let's see what country is (roughly) between London and South Africa? Ooh look! It's Nigeria. I wonder what would happen if they go hold of the data...? (rhetorical)

I also wonder what punishment the ICO or FSA will mete out? I small fine, I suspect :(
Finally, what the hell were they doing sending tapes to SA in the first place...? That's taking offiste backup to an extreme!
What's the point in students buying WIndows 7?

This and all the other deals that MS is having for W7 smack of desperation...
