I use Latin 1 (ISO 8859-1). Well, so far I'm running Fedora Core 1, but
when I upgrade I'll still use Latin 1. I've got lots of text files and
filenames with non-English letters in them. No matter which operating
system system I use I'll be stuck to Latin 1 for the foreseeable future.
For filenames, a tool could be written to transcode them automatically,
but for the files' content there's *no* way for the system to know which
files would have to be transcoded and which would get destroyed if it
tried to transcode them.
