 I wanted to help testing Dextrose. So I downloaded os508. My XO-1 has an
 Arabic/English keyboard.

 Problem 1: Dextrose starts in an Arabic locale but does not have any
 Arabic font. So all localized strings are shown using hex characters. IMHO
 it would be better to leave out the arabic locales if the font is not
 shipped to be able to use them.

 Problem 2: After entering the user name, in the color selection screen,
 the buttons at the bottom are confusing. The left one has an icon pointing
 right, the right one an icon pointing left. That is very confusing, it
 should either be LTR or RTL, but not mixed.

 Problem 3: Thanks to the recognizable icons I made it into the control
 panel's language selection screen. However, all the languages were
 *translated* to Arabic. That makes no sense at all, language names should
 *not* be translated. It was very hard to find "English" because all I saw
 were hexadecimal glyphs.
