Which Arabic keyboard dialect should I use?

I want to add arabic to my windows languages, but there are 16 variations (Algeria, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, etc) and no standard one.

I have no idea which one should I pick.

Any should work. The difference is just in the location of some keys (and maybe some have extra symbols more than the others) ... but all should work.

As TJ_Q8 said, the difference is in the location of the keys on the keyboard. For that reason, I chose the one that matches the location of the keys on the keyboard cover I got. Out of the few keyboards preinstalled on my MAC, Arabic-North Africa matches my keyboard cover exactly.
