A certain version of Grub 0.95 has Simplified Chinese support, and we aslo know the next

generation of Grub ( V2.0 ) has been re-designed and having 1stly

Japanese supported. And the Windows' NTLDR also has fully Localization

support. So, will Freeldr is going to be supporting non-English Character?

- No, it is true. I'm using Windows XP Simplified Chinese Version With SP2.

And the Boot menu can display Chinese Characters - video mode is

640 x 480 x 16 colors( INT 10h Mode 12h). SO, I think, Other Version of

Windows NT may have the same functions, too.


- Since Freeldr is some kind of NT's loader ( Although I cannot use it to

boot my installed Win.XP system ), how about apply this function in the

future release?

I can confirm this.
NT4 has such feature and it includes in Chinese Traditional/Simplified, Japanese, and Korean version of NTLDR.
And I believed that all versions of NTLDR are localized.

Do you know GRUB4DOS? It enhances GNU GRUB a lot!

Yes, I know. But that is Grub, not Freeldr. :D
