comment Is “software” singular or plural? Can “softwares” be used instead?
I come across people mistakenly using "softwares" reasonably often. I sometimes see it being used by Japanese people, so it's not a mistake only made by people from the subcontinent.

"Go big" means to be ambitious. There's a related phrase "Go big or go home".

@Chenmunka it's asking why a word used in English is spelt the way it is.

I mistakenly spelt it "Tokiyo" in the title, even though I meant "Tokio". Sorry about that.
