Alphabet

There is a shocking news, the alphabet will lose one letter. The announcement came from the Commission on English Language Center (ELCC). After considering and debating this issue for over two years, ELCC finally decided to delete the letter "Z" from the English alphabet to simplify the phonetic aspects of language, and to unite the American and British spelling. What about the fate of the words that have the letter "z" in it? According to the ELCC, the words that begin with "z" will now be replaced with "x". For example:
* Zero to xero* Zoo animals became xoo* Zone becomes xone* Zodiac into xodiac
While the letters "z" is not as the beginning of the word but the words will be replaced with "s". Examples include:
* Becomes visualise visualize* Analyze Becomes Analyse* Becomes materialize materialise
What is your opinion about this change? Would it really simplify the English language, or will it make things more confusing?
