[wellylug] M$ Windows has Maori Language Support

Maori would have to be the smallest population to have recognition so far,
though. And given that a small minority of those can even read and speak it
fluently, it makes you wonder who makes these decisions and on what basis.

Not that I object - it just seems unusual..

curious.
i was under the impression that microsoft does not even support languages
which have many more speakers than maori.

this seems to be a list though: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=292246
