Clever indeed

Just for giggles and some test I installed Kubuntu in Russian and it turns out that the “Д/н” prompts can also be acquitted with y or n as one would expect. Otherwise I would have been in a kerfuffle as I installed the system in Russian, but the keyboard as US-English1.

It’s a positive surprise to see that I can get through system administration tasks with the default English responses whenever I need to. Kudos to whoever made that decision!

  1. I actually prefer US-English keyboards for my daily work and use only those on all my machines. Not surprising it’s convenient on US-English keyboards … after all most programming languages come from an anglophone background ;) … []
