Literacy rates are actually quite low in the US... Our educational
system is not what it used to be. As for what sub-version of
English to use? You have to consider that the English speakers in
the rest of the world, for the most part, learn British english.
It /is/ actually considered an easier dialect to understand, as the
brits tend to speak slower and annunciate better. As for
spelling... Personally I mix and match thanks to my background
(spellcheck has a field day with that). I say we leave it up to Ton
(oh Great Leader one) and avoid a holy war (this whole thing was
discussed to death on the linux kernel list).
Hey. why not make it a user-pref? ( kidding ;P )
