The Giga Character Set is vaporware, that has not materialized in any form in the five years since it was announced. It is implausable that it will materialize in any form; as stated in the primary source, it's only a step above a perpetual motion machine. And the only source is one article. It's linked to from two pages, in lists of alternatives to Unicode, which it could probably be deleted from since it's just vaporware. Prosfilaes 02:56, 3 August 2005 (UTC)
DeleteAs of 2005, Coventive has never published the details of Giga Character Set for examination, nor has it ever been implemented in any publicly available application oh why on earth do they think this is notable then? <drini☎> 05:04, 3 August 2005 (UTC)
<drini , could there be a possible copyright violation with this ? The wording of the first paragraph seems to be the same. Manik Raina 05:08, 3 August 2005 (UTC)
Delete. Vapourware. Advertisement. I'll believe it when I see it. Alex.tan 05:11, August 3, 2005 (UTC)
keep, IBM articles mention it , so it's notable. I don't see how this could be considered an advertisement, more like the opposite. Kappa 13:36, 3 August 2005 (UTC)
Delete, even if IBM has linked it, Wikipedia's not a crystal ball. The cited article contains technical gaffes that make me doubt it will come to anything. Gazpacho 16:51, 3 August 2005 (UTC)
Delete <Simultaneous_nearly_identical_reply> Vaporware, and it's still a crystal ball attempt, even if IBM is peering into their crystal balls, as well. </Simultaneous_nearly_identical_reply - poke, poke, you owe me a coke!>Xaa 16:55, 3 August 2005 (UTC)
Delete. It's hard to have any ability to independently research and verify the topic without any release of further information about it; when Coventive gets around to that, it'd be reasonable to revisit the creation of a page about it. Jason 18:14, 3 August 2005 (UTC)
Delete. I could find all sorts of things that Some Person At IBM made a passing reference to. Many of them would not be notable, this included. - Thatdog 04:58, 4 August 2005 (UTC)
Delete - a hypothetical advertisement for theoretical vapourware. Nandesuka 12:19, 4 August 2005 (UTC)
