A lot of alliteration about terrific times trying to type Tifinagh

The question that came up the other day from Tom:

Is there a Tifinagh keyboard layout for Vista?  I was wanting to make one for OS X but have had a hard time finding a model.

Well, good to know that people are planning on putting Vista to good use. I wonder what the spin would be for those "I'm a Mac, I'm a PC" commercials? :-)

To answer the question, there isn't a layout for Tifinagh in Vista. There do seem to be quite a few different thoughts on layouts on the web, but none seems to stand out as authoritative.

Though generally speaking, we wouldn't have a script-based keyboard. But it might make more sense to look into keyboard layouts for languages like Amazigh, Tamazight, or Tamasheq, instead?
