Why Technical Translators Might Hate Vista

I can't speak for anyone else, but I strongly dislike windows vista. As a technical translator it is necessary for me to keep travelling and improving my language skills. In Taiwan, I decided I needed a new laptop so I bought a BENQ Joybook (a Taiwanese brand). The laptop came with the basic version of Vista.

So I take the laptop home, install everything, and try to change the language....

(yes I'm a Chinese to English translator but I prefer using the English interface)

...and what happens....error!

You can't change the language, you buy the machine in Taiwan, you have to use the Traditional Chinese interface.

It's totally unforgivable!
