Re: A 3rd Party Observer on the Future of IDNS - Failures/Success

People who don't speak English will not type in English domain names very well. That's for sure.

They will use their own language, using whatever tools there are for input. If you think those languages, or input tools are complicated, that's too bad for you. Start taking Chinese lessons in your spare time. Then react in shock when you realize little kids speak Chinese perfectly even though you stumble through basic concepts. Your post is the same kind of reaction. Wow! Look, there are complicated languages, more complicated then mine, amazing how do those guys over there use them? Wow, dude, they can type in Chinese too! How complicated it must be! Surely, they will never get through writing a letter in Chinese, there are thousands of chracters to choose from! How on earth can they decide which ones to use?!

What you say has no bearing on what end-users, especially end users who speak no English.

Get this: the Japanese Kana keyboard is actually more effective than English. It outputs whole syllables in one keypress.

Edit: I guess you are Chinese, so the above is not relevant.
