If I understand correctly, you talk about why the British English and
not American English...
Sorry, but I'm not talking about default language. I am talking about
unnecessary lang packages.
Firts, I don't understand why "language-support-translations-XX"
install a package(s) "thunderbird-locale-xx-XX" when Ubuntu don't
install thunderbird mail client by default... Ubuntu uses evolution
as mail client, non?
Second, I don't understan why Ubuntu keep installed English support
packages when I chose other language.
- Wasted space (~130 MB)
- Time lost to uninstall
I refer to these packages:
It is curious, UK and U.S English.. Also, it has even dialects of
English: myspell-en-au (English australian) or myspell-en-za (English
Why a Ubuntu user from Argentina, France or any other no-English
country will want to have these packages installed by default?
