      As Chip said, UTF-16 is rather baked into the stuff we do. The console host does use UTF-16 somewhere in there. :P We just have the matter of dealing with code pages throughout the history of computing existence that causes us heartburn every time we think about how to fix this. :( It’s definitely something that we would like to look into on our backlog.

      I suggested this idea on the Windows Server feedback site, but of course I'd appriciate it if Windows 10 would support UTF8-native locales.

      What I want is a kind of "Universal locale which uses CP65001 as ANSI-encoding by default"

        It’s on the backlog, but not currently planned.

        We know many of you would like to be able to accelerate your numerical analysis code via CUDA/OpenCL, etc.

        One thing to explore in the meantime is to try running your code in Windows. Windows actually has very powerful GPU-acceleration capabilities and you may well find that much of your existing code may well work already or require trivial effort to port to Windows itself.

        in the meantime, bear with us, and UPVOTE THIS ISSUE if you care (please don’t create another duplicate ask – that doesn’t help us prioritize asks).

        Thanks.
