Even, Brahmic languages, Chinese, Japanese, Hebrew, Arabic, Greek, Cyrillic based etc? Or just Latin-Roman? Anyone remember Wordstar, or Eudora mail or Amazon Kindles for many years?

No excuse for Eudora, it was a solved problem. Less even for the Kindle as the underlying OS had supported all of those for years.

The USA companies have a very US and English perspective. Many even seem to think only well off white adult males exist. Over 85% of the world's population is outside of North America. The average human has English as a second language, isn't white, has black hair, brown eyes and about 1/2 of them are women.


"but they've got some very large languages on that list. They were able to afford that before, they can continue to."

Greed and Arrogance.
