Great. So you can change from SOME language to other languages, just not from Spanish to English. I bought a laptop b/c my other one was dying from the heat here in Spain, and, of course, it was installed in Spanish. With my old VISTA I just installed the language pack and voila it was in English. NOW I find out I have to fork out another 190 euros more to get a version in English. I wish I had bought an URDU, MANDARIN OR WELSH computer then I would be able to install English for free. I thought Windows 7 would be better but it turns out it sucks. Well, actually Microsoft is just trying to gouge users. They should be ashamed of themselves.

Yeah, if we had bought computers that were installed in Mandarin or Urdu or Welsh we could download an update to ENglish, but because we are ex-pats Microsoft wants us to pay more. I am so angry. With Vista I just downloaded the Language Pack and switched everything to ENglish, now with Windows 7 which is supposed to be better Microsoft wants me to pay almost 200 euros more to update to Ultimate. If the software I HAVE to use for my work would run on a different platform I would never use WIndows again.

Thank you VERY much!

Even though my mother tongue IS Spanish (I'm and Italian born in Argentina), I cannot conceive ANYTHING digital in any other language than English.

So, you give me the answer I was looking since ever!

What's wrong with you Derekimo. Microsoft made god awful work by forcing people to use ultimate version of Windows to be able to change their system language. Every other OS has that option. Firstly, who told you Vistalizator is hack? It's a small program that makes life easier to everyone who have to use it. What would you do if you had a PC for a while (few years), personalized everything the way you like and then "delete" everything just because of bad Microsoft's work. Really???

It is a hack program to enable otherwise unavailable options of the OS that were not paid for.

I don`t see what the big deal is, Home Premium comes in English and Spanish and he has a license, so what`s the harm.

5 year old thread anyway

For the OP it was harmless, using that to obtain features that weren't paid for was the issue that I was talking about, there was another thread where it was discussed at length over the legality of it.
