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.

It's not about how many languages one speaks (I do a few), but about control. I don't need anything else than UI in English, and spelling control in UK and NL - that's it. The rest is just wasted space. And it can amount to hundreds of megabytes on a Mac.

A simple control panel applet where you can remove unused languages would suffice. Doesn't even need to be at install time.

That is not to say others do it any better. Try getting spelling control installed on Windows or Office - other than your default one. Is it even possible?

Yeah.. it's not that hard. Office comes with an applet to add additional language spelling and grammar support and Windows has a dialog which you can use to add keyboard, handwriting, and speech input layouts.
