Just my two unimportant cents, but I think that those are the type of settings (along with time zone) that the user should be prompted for either during the installation process or upon first-boot. That makes the default setting irrelevant, and provides less reason for a customized distro. Similarily, I suppose, language and text encoding settings might be offered during installation (possibly as one of the first steps).2007/5/23, Fredrik Ekdahl <fekdahl@xxxxxxxxx>:Three things here strikes me: * Window/Preferences/Date and Time/Clock = 24 Hour * Window/Preferences/Date and Time/Date Order = Year-Month-Day Are there any reasons for why these settings are not default? If I'm not totally mistaken, that time/date format is used in most countries and follows ISO 8601.Because not everyone likes this and for most people it's crap, I guess. Although I find the default's (american, I would guess) month-day-year even worse.
