Description Christian Rose 2000-08-04 10:52:55 EDT
As far as I know, it's only the US that uses AM/PM-clock as a standard

I think the default clock applet on the panel should default to 24h-clock
format, as it is probably what most users want.

At the very least, it should honor the locale settings in that aspect
(LC_TIME), that has a setting for AM/PM use.

hp - maybe we should communicate this concern to our overseas offices -
obviously most of our shipments are going to US customers
Comment 2 Christian Rose 2000-08-04 11:17:51 EDT
If the US market is the most important, don't change the default then - but
_please_ patch the clock applet so that it honors the locale AM/PM setting, so
that foreign customers, with the correct locale settings, won't get US-ified
AM/PM clocks on their otherwise localized default desktops.
