In a change from the usual government minister, this year's CeBIT exhibition in Hanover was opened yesterday by none other than the Governator himself - Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The Governor of California attended the show because the IT organization of the state of California is exhibiting at the event - Europe's largest IT show. But his open remarks were a departure from what we normally get from IT events, even from characters like Ballmer.

Arnie trotted out a bunch of his famous lines, including telling the German Chancellor Angela Merkel 'Hasta la vista baby' and promising the audience 'I'll be back'.

Makes a change from the usual boring keynotes I suppose - so who do you think should open Gitex this year?
