Editorial Songbird is a new open-source music player that has this week landed at 1.0. Songbird is described as a "web player"- a music player for this modern, connected era. It blends the web-rendering core of Firefox (Gecko), with the media capabilities of GStreamer- a cross-platform, open-source media playback engine.

You select a language, or languages during installation, and that is all that you get. Why should someone who speaks Russian be loaded up with simplified Chinese translations and font packages?

This has been the freakiest week in the history of evar for me. I've had all sorts of when-hell-freezes-over moments, but this one tops them.

Dude, I totally agree with sbergman27.

I just want to select "English (UK)" during installation, and be done with it (computing in my native language is silly and awkward). On my Mac, lots of space is wasted on supporting languages I don't use, and the only way to reclaim this space is through 3rd party tools that often break some applications or even the operating system as a whole.

I hope Apple realises this one of these days. Heck, I don't think the MAc even HAS English (UK). It just has the US variant.
