    No objections :-) . Try to be in power. But let's recall that the world is changed by actions, not by strong words on this forum.

    Update: We have slightly different opinions here. Yet, noone of us has enough power to force other person to change its opinion. Maybe, that is also challenge for standardization: To look for better ways than just forcing - agreements, good communication, building of relations, etc. This way, the standardization might get stronger grounds and stronger support and become more effective.

    Standardization is definitely good thing. I like UTF-8 very much. But thanks for giving me freedom to use UTF-32 and other formats internally in my app, because for some reason, it provides me with advantages.

    Concerning English: try to force me to use it. You cannot. I am free to use any language I know. Even Chinese people are free to use their own language. And there are more Chinese people than people in US. Anyway, you might try to force them to change. Also, part of Africa is French speaking. Try to force them to change their customs. But is it a good idea to force people? Is it good for US people to force Chinese, or Chinese people to force US people?
    If I was in power I definitely would, and the world would be far better off. I don't care one bit how many people speak any given language. English is the international language for a reason, and those salty whiners need to accept this fact already. People already use it to communicate internationally. Make it the norm everywhere and everything is simplified.

    Listen to Hitler speaking to Mannerheim. See if you can draw the line between a modern German and his accent (because he sounds 'normal' contrary to his oratory scenarios)....

    Just like everyone should be forced to use UTF-8 instead of all the other monstrosities like UTF-16.

    But it's harder on computers, because of backwards compatibility. You'll still need the APIs anyway.

    I wonder what's the feedback about these patches by LKML and Linus Torvalds himself. What do Linux developers think about ntsync patches?

    I wonder if this can be useful outside wine too. PC Emulation?
    zero advantages considering that zero applications and games have been found so far to actually use them.

    Mostly backwards compatibility for the windows side. They added a dumb api a long time ago, and now they're stuck with it forever, or until they decide it's ok to break applications.

    The problem is that futex2 likely can't get upstream because it breaks such things. ntsync can. That's why she's comparing to upstream.
