If you want an official course, then you can make your wishes known through this:

However, the post contains a statement that the only Chinese they will support is Mandarin. For now anyway.

It says "may not," not "won't." Of course Duolingo may or may not do pretty much aanything.

I'm hoping someone can comment on this question I've been wondering about: what writing system would a Cantonese course use? I'm under the impression that Cantonese speaking areas largely use Mandarin for writing and that written Cantonese isn't actually standardized as yet, as it's mostly a spoken language.

Cantonese would be very cool!
Admittedly I would prefer Mandarin, But Cantonese would be awesome to have on here nonetheless. :)
