In 'Merica its "Initializing" not "Initialising"

September 13, 2018

This is a bit of a fun post.


While rebuilding the ZC706 BSP using petalinux-build I noticed that Initialising is spelled incorrectly:


 ...but its only spelled incorrectly in American English. Its spelled correctly in British English


Its a bug to me since I'm in 'Merica.



Some History


The PetaLinux SDK was initially released by PetaLogix in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia in 2010. In 2012 Xilinx acquired PetaLogix. Since Australia is one of 16 British Commonwealth realms, they would have naturally preferred used Initialising.
