The curious case of the disappearing Polish S

An interesting conclusion to think about:
If there wasn’t Communism in Poland we (Polish people) might have had a keyboard layout prepared specifically for our language that might have been popularized in the future days of computer development. Therefore today we would be likely to have this logical barrier in using hardware (keyboards, laptops) from markets that have typical QWERTY keyboards. And more so, devices from big brands (e.g. Apple) would probably be coming even later to our market because they would need specialized keyboards.

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
