Following the release of R1B2 I have now abandoned Windows on my “leisure” computer, and am trying to get a few things organised.
One of these is a calendar program. Sadly, the only Haiku calendars use the US date style (MMDDYY), which is almost unknown outside the US. It would be OK if dates were configurable, but they are not. It might also be OK if the US system was logical, but it’s not. Even in the US, the date style is not universal. The military doesn’t use it, and nor do many scientific and other institutions.
So I should like to make a plea that calendar makers - and others who need to show dates - either make dates configurable, or use the ISO standard, which is YYYYMMDD.
And the same goes for time. AM and PM really should be placed on the scrap heap. The 24 hour clock (HH:MM, not HHMM) is the only way to go.
