Re: Things we can do better than Windows

Re: Transparent locale-per-application support idea

It is a good idea but unfortunately is pretty tough to implment.. I won't say impossible right off, but... ;) The only way this could happen is for every app running in it's own specific codepage (that's what's important here, using the correct windows codepage), the OS will need to do conversions t...

Re: Arwinss : Alternative names + logo request

Ok guys just found this thread, how bout - Tawny Port, or just Tawny. For those who enjoy a nice port wine, this is a popular barrel-aged option.
