Look at the relative numbers in Asia and Aurope; it's close even in England and Ireland.

And strangely, 'minimize' trumps 'minimise' even in England and Ireland. It's only the Aussies and Kiwis that're still holding out !

PS : They're talking about this right now on the radio (specifically the regional distribution of the 'sex' search).

Am I missing something here? When I looked at the regional distribution, both the UK and Ireland have more in maximiSe than in maximiZe :confused:
