Red Hat Forum and attention to UI details

Redhat is conducting a Forum in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok. I found their invitation in my eMail today. While the signup form contained the usual lead-generating questions it showed the hand of a careful Ui designer:
Good Selection putting most likely countries first
For the forum one is most likely to attend from one of the 10 countries listed and stated first, releaving users to scroll through a list of places you never will see unless you click on a "Select country" dropdown. I particularily liked the clear labeling as "common choices" and "other countries". Mincing for words one could opt for "popular choices" and "all countries", but that would be the sprinkle on the icing on the cake.
Go and sign up. See you in Singapore Dec 3.

    It is just hard to find your country as you have to scroll down and not able to type in the name. Don't like it.
