Watch out for this bug at Greek Vista’s command-line
Nasty bug I just came across. When you do at localized Greek version of Window Vista:
Rmdir /s somefolder
it asks (in Greek text) for confirmation of folder deletion but suffixes the prompt with a (Y/N) instead of (Ν/Ο) [nai = yes for greek and oxi = no) and however accepts only the Ν/Ο greek chars there.
Very hard for the user to understand what to enter there and more importantly what will happen: if they try to enter N trying to say No they may accidentally enter a Greek “N” and do a YES (and thus lose the folder). Note that Y/N English chars aren’t accepted by that prompt.
Users shouldn’t be seeing an English prompt (Y/N says nothing in a localized Greek message), but having it expect a Greek char for a reply as if it had shown (Ν/Ο) makes it even worse.
