Well these guys are simplicity itself compared to (With ??) the average "Scouser" (Liverpool) or "Maccam" (City of Sunderland) near Newcastle upon Tyne in NE England.

Actually, I understood them just fine. Try talking to someone from the Aran Islands or another Gaeltacht area.

Does it come with a language package update for Windows 8?

Mostly what passes for English there but, for a wee bit, Irish Gaelic.

Does this English with a wee bit of Irish Gaelic have a written language? If not their would be no language update package for Windows 8

I would love to see their reaction to Windows 8! I'm sure they would have some choice words about finding the start button, shutting off an application and shutting off the computer!

Technically, Gaelic is unwritten but it does have an equivalent in English characters. Don't hold your breath for an Irish Gaelic Win 8 language package, though (although there is one for Scottish Gaelic; go figure).

You think all Irish are barbarians? You sound like you are English!

I was always wondering to which degree the different Celtic tribes can still understand each other. Each year there is a Celtic festival in the Bretagne where the Celtic people from GB, F, ESP. IRL and probably some other countries meet.

Irish and Scottish Gaelic are similar but both are different from Welsh, Breton, etc.

Would You Reject A Pre-Built PC Because Of Windows 8
I found an excellent pre-built PC deal. The system uses quality parts and is cheaper than the cost of the separate parts + shipping by $125.00. Plus, I would have to spend time building the PC. The only problem are is it ships with Windows 8 only. Is Windows 8 a deal killer ?
