Hi,

The Vista language is set to taiwanese (a taiwanese layout thinkpad). I want
to
change the language to English for Vista - how do I do that?


Thanks!

You can't. Windows Vista Ultimate Edition allows the changing of languages,
no other retail version does.

That's kind of ridiculous that's the only version that has that feature.

I didn't make that decision, I only inform others about it. ;-)
