In Ubuntu, it is a bunch of black blocks.

Kubuntu sees it too. I spotted that it was Cherokee immediately..... And then was beaten to it. Next time

Merry Christmas each. Official Christmas starts in 8 minutes.

I can see it now! I installed the "ttf-lg-aboriginal" package from the repos, so now I have (somewhat useless) Native American language font support...yay!

I applaud everyone who was brave enough to say Merry Christmas despite the risk of being labeled hateful, politically incorrect, etc. and possibly receiving verbal abuse.

Merry Christmas!

And so that weird-looking language was Cherokee? It displayed fine on my system, Arch Linux. I thought it was an asian language, like Gujerati or something.

Actually, this is Gujarati: ગુજરાતી

Gujarati word for itself ("Gujǎrātī"). Borrowed from Wikipedia
