Greek Mac users demand local Apple support

On the 28th of November, 2006, Macworld reported: “Mac users in Greece have stepped up their campaign for local support from Apple with the introduction of self-made Greek localisation for Mac OS X. The pressure group is currently beta testing the localization for free under a General Public Licence. The group is also offering free Greek fonts. It is upset that Apple, like many computer manufacturers, has no dedicated Greek presence.”
Macworld staff continues saying: “The company doesn’t even offer a Greek version of its website. Along with localized versions of Apple software, the group wants the company to open its own office in Greece.”

The same day The Unofficial Apple Weblog (TUAW) reported too:Greeks demand local Apple support. They feel neglected and overlooked despite their fondness for Macintoshes. The aptly named WeWantAppleGreece.com has sprung up to help fill the support gap...”

It feels good, to see that foreign sites pay attention to our requests! It doesn’t feel good to see that Apple hasn’t paid any attention to our requests yet.  Hopefully they will soon. Messages from all around the country indicate that more and more Greeks, give up the traditional computing experience and although the difficulties they have to face, they choose Apple and Macintosh. I wonder where the numbers would reach if only there was equal treatement in sale and support, like the other European countries.
