Photoshop: Decimal symbol can only be comma or period, as opposed to ID of AI

If you ever put a decimal value in any field in Photoshop and the decimal separator happens to be not the one you have as a default in your OS, Photoshop shows an error message and forces you to follow the settings you have on your system. This is very annoying, since both InDesign and Illustrator handle it just fine, you can type in either a comma or a period. I'm using two keyboard layouts on a Mac, and sometimes it's easier for me to type a comma rather than a period, but it's just a nightmare when I have to be aware that in Photoshop only one symbol works, while in InDesign and Illustrator I don't have to worry about it.

The same problem. It is so ridiculous!
I've even created a new issue about this problem:

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Photoshop should parse both dots (.) and commas (,) for fractional numbers.

Is it very difficult to parse BOTH dots (.) and commas (,) for fractional numbers (1.5pt; 1,5pt) ?

The numpad on my keyboard insets either dots, or commas. It depends on the current layout.
And it is sooo unconvenient and annoying when Photoshop shows this ridiculous message:
