Windows 7: Regional Themes

09 Feb 2009   #1

Windows RC 7100 x64, Vista Ultimate x64,
Regional Themes

The pictures in the regional themes are only different for GB and USA.
The Australia, Canada and South Africa have the same pictures.

Is this just my version of Windows 7 (downloaded direct from MS) or is it the same in all versions ?

On another note I had to smile. The themes for GB include a picture from Northern Ireland, which means that the theme should be titled UK
Great Britain is England, Scotland and Wales.
United Kingdom is England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Pedantic I know.

TBH I'm impressed with Microsoft - a lot of US based companies would have called it an England theme

Newport, where I was born, 62 years ago it was in England.
You would think Microsoft was spread around the Globe enough, to not get Countries identities wrong.

When you consider the lack of geographical knowledge in various countries....

the average street person cannot name more than a few state capitals here in the US, doesn't know the number of states in the union, the number of stripes on the flag, not which of the following are continents and which are countries: Europe, France, Russia, Asia, Thailand and Australia....
