I get the impression that a lot of people on the forum aren't native English speakers. I was just curious how it brakes down and if you want let us know what home speaks. I think is really interesting (and great) how global of a community we have around here.

I didn't really know what languages to put up, so most people will probably fall in the "other" category, sorry, but there are alot more than 10 languages in the world. So I just took some of the top Languages in the world.

Ay, and, Canadian is not a language ay so take off.

English dialect - Newfinese. And yes, it is another language, anyone that has ever been to Newfoundland can tell you that.

Well, I don't speak like the real newfies, but I was born and raised here.

I just grabed the languages off of a list of the top most spoken languages in the world. I took of some like Chinese and Japanese because I know specifically China doesn't get on to the web all that often with the filters. However, maybe we will see more Chinese as China moves more and more of its computers over to linux. Ya for China.

To be honest with you, I don't know where some of those languages I put up are ever spoken. I asumed some of theme were from India since its one of the most populous nations in the world, I figured they could secure a couple of the top most spoken languages.

You can't speak binary and more than you can in denary - Any self-respecting programmer knows that :| . You could maybe spell the english/whatever words in the binary representation of a character set however. smile.gif Duh!
