    The Dzongkha language does *not* suffer from political difficulties
    in Bhutan - in fact the Government of Bhutan very actively promotes
    Dzongkha as the national language. There is a whole department
    devoted to the (Dzongkha Development Authority) - as well as to
    the preservation of about 14 minority Bhutanese languages.

    BTW the initial version of a Linux release with the user interface of
    the whole GNOME desktop and a number of applications including
    OpenOffice & Mozilla translated to Dzongkha in Tibetan script is about
    to be released by the Department of Information Technology, Ministry of
    Communications in Bhutan.
