Windows The geek world might be all over Windows 7, and the rest of the world might be sticking to Windows XP for now, but there is also this Windows Vista operating system lingering around. Microsoft has just released the final version of the second service pack for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008.

So you're suggesting that if all computers can't be protected, NO COMPUTER should get protection.

Yes, localization really IS that much work. You're writing documentation, dialog boxes, error messages, legalese (especially legalese) for all of those languages. You have to make sure the switches and keyboard accelerators don't conflict with expected behavior in the other languages. And of course, MS probably has fewer people doing that for the smaller languages than they do for the big ones so it takes longer still.

That said, they probably will have the other languages out by the end of June.
