Acredito que o Português do Brasil é o padrão porque as primeiras
localizações foram para o Brasil (economicamente mais atraente, população
maior). O que não é o caso por exemplo do OpenOffice (StarOffice também) que
as primeiras traduções foram para Portugal e somente agora tem suporte para
o português do Brasil, porque neste caso, o software livre, o que importa é
ter voluntários.

I believe that the Portuguese of Brazil is the default because the first
localizations had been for Brazil (economically more attractive, bigger
population). What it is not the case for example of the OpenOffice
(StarOffice also) that the first translations had been for Portugal and now
only has support for the Portuguese of Brazil, because in this in case that,
free software, what it matters is to have voluntary.
