The other day, I was asked whether Windows supports all 22 of the Eighth Schedule languages in the Constitution of India.

You know, these 22 languages:

Assamese
Bengali
Bodo
Dogri
Gujarati
Hindi
Kannada
Kashmiri
Konkani
Maithili
Malayalam
Manipuri
Marathi
Nepali
Oriya
Punjabi
Sanskrit
Santhali
Sindhi
Tamil
Telugu
Urdu

 The vast majority of them are supported in Windows, using their preferred scripts, and with a font, a locale, a keyboard, and a Language Interface Pack.

 But there are some that are missing between one and five of those things.

In some cases for known reasons, and in other cases not

I think I'm going to have to dig into some of them a little deeper in future blogs.

Lke Bodo. And Dogri. And Kashmiri. And Mathili. And Manipuri.

And Santhali.

Each with their own story -- maybe a new Tag is needed?

Nah, I can use the "Linguistic" one I already have....
