"Proper" British English finally coming to Windows
As a native speaker of English —as distinct from its transatlantic cousin, American —Windows has long been the source of considerable emotional trauma for me. Though the operating system has always let us use a UK keyboard layout, it has insisted on offending our sensibilities with such non-words as "favorites" and "colors." Thankfully this will soon be no longer, as Windows 8 will treat British English as a first-class citizen . This is no mere language pack, either: Microsoft will sell boxed and preinstalled copies of the British English operating system that preferentially use and default to the Queen's English, with no colonial fallback. Windows 8 will also include 13 new language packs, primarily for languages used in emerging markets. The process for installing new languages has also been considerably streamlined and simplified.
