    I'm not wrong. You READ wrong.

    I listed some accented characters from the azerty layout, and then mentioned other type of languages with known specific accented characters which would probably use some specific layout. I wasn't talking about azerty there. The 2 ideas were dissociated.

    Also, azerty is the standard in Belgium (included for dutch speakers).

    It's a very good example on the contrary, as you can do it on a phone keyboard with a long press on the s (I have to switch to german keyboard first though).

    The ä, ö, ü, ë, ï, ê, î, é, à, è, ù and such are very easy to hit on azerty keyboards. Probably Hungarian, Polish, Czech, Swedish, etc... have their own easy ways to type the many accented characters in their language.
    On qwerty, not so much since the English language doesn't have many.
    Hitting accented characters through long presses would make it much much easier on qwerty keyboards and even if common in some leyboard layouts, it's still great if you can avoid changing your hand position to reach the combining keys.

    You're probably an Amerimutt - famous the world over for being culturally oblivious.
    And you're most certainly wrong. I'm from (and lives in) a neighboring country to Germany. I know many Germans or Austrians and they've never been offended by the word, except if you're being annoying and repeat it ad nauseam of course.

    People should stop trying to guess or extrapolate. It often backfires and they don't look good afterwards.

    The question was not "does this interfere", but "how much does this interfere". Are the two things mutually exclusive? Is the feature just limited to some keys (e.g., vowels that can get an accent)? Are keys for which the feature might not be relevant still autorepeating (space for instance) or does autorepeat get disabled also for them?

    Always RTFA before commenting. "Naturally, the feature can be disabled (on the System Settings keyboard page) if you prefer the current behavior to repeat the held-down key."

    * Punctuation/math: –, —, «»“” · × ¬ ± ºC π
    * Deutsch: Herr Überbeßerwißer
    * Svenska: Världen är ett smörgåsbord
    * Íslenska: Ég veit það
    * Français: Mon cœur est à la voiture, un Citroën.
    * Español: ¿Eres tú, señor Mañana?

    I can speak for the standard Norwegian keyboard layout: It is surely unergonomic to program on, but I have yet to meet a European language I can't write in (apart from cyrillic). It has Alt-Gr, Shift+Alt-Gr and dead-key combos, which is like having another keyboard of symbols plus the two-key combos for putting on all kinds of accents.
    Ελληνικά? (Sorry I cheated, that capital epsilon was copied from a character table)

    The true strength of a geek community (I have nothing valuable to add, but I did appreciate the discussion, learned a few German words and had a few laughs)
