Default Re: Random Thoughts

Duncan's mention of education and our previous discussion of spelling has me thinking about grammar. I am curious if a particular usage I have been seeing is a regional/national thing, or simply benign misuse.

I keep seeing "different to..."

I was taught "similar to," "different from" or "different than."

Any of you edumacated types from around the globe care to enlighten me?
