I don’t suppose you know why 0 is on the other side in Hungary specifically…?
Marcin Wichary

A possible reason is the over-abundance of accented letters (öüóőúéáű und í) in the Hungarian language, which almost all reside on the right side, therefore necessitating the move of 0 to the left side (I imagine this was preferred to shifting the entire number row one place to the left).

Of course, this is just a theory I have thought of in the last 10 minutes. Thanks for providing such an interesting prompt :)
