English is the principal language of computing, and the principal
language of the GNU Project's communications.  The text in the Emacs
distribution is nearly all in English.  Thus, what things mean or
suggest in English is of paramount importance.

But you might not know that in the hacker community "Win!" is used as
an exclamation meaning "Great!" or "What a success!"  We are not going
to say that about a proprietary program.
