Okay so recently I've read a bunch of articles about how France is becoming relaxed about the rise of English. It appears however this is just a front to make us relax so we won't see the real goal.
Unfortunately I've unearthed this plot via Apple, looking at the MacPro and going through the "HOW much could I spend on a PC?" test. I saw the following

Yes you get a British keyboard, but you have to learn French to understand the instructions. This is a truly nefarious plot.
Now this actually has a good point from a globalised project perspective. You can't assume what language people are going to speak so you need to be very clear about what you are going to support (i.e. keyboard in English, but instructions in French) otherwise you can end up in a hell-hole of trying to support every language in existence.
Fortunately English in general remains the lingua franca ;)
