One of the columnists in the UK magazine PCPro has just pointed out in his latest column that there - for the first in MS Operating System history, he says - will be a British English version of Windows 8 (naturally in addition to the US version and, who knows, twenty plus other language versions).
He pointed out that this will mean that we over here will no longer have to put up with the abomination of Favorites reminding us of the fact the US Americans have taken over the world.
Well any reduction in the amount of bad spelling in computer products is good of course but I can't help wondering just how many software products will still in their installation routines be still looking for "Favorites".
In fact why bother with a British English version anyway. I've spent years selecting English (US) automatically because that's the version that has been tested the best; has less bugs and almost certainly quicker fixes. Why, then, use anything else - is it really that important to get our letter "u" back in colour and Favourites?
