Stunned and amazed

How on earth could a company such as Microsoft, with global software domiation ambitions, not have planned from the outset to eventually provide support for the countless linguistic nuances around the world.

But no, they wrote their product for the merkin market and expected to be able to adapt it for regional markets later on... After all, whats good for America is good for the rest of the world, right?
