    Will they be made available at 0:00 Seattle time?

    Which ones will there be?

    They're online now, Texas Hold'em, bitlocker and 5 updates for Vista 64bit version, plus language packs! I wondered why they weren't up on MSDN yet.

    Installing them now...

    May I ask which languages you can install on Ultimate?

    My family has been waiting for years to be able to have multiple languages on a single computer.

    1. Can you have multiple languages going at once (e.g. 1 user in Spanish, 1 user in English, and 1 user in Chinese)?
    2. If I pick Chinese, will it remap my keyboard for me so that I can type in Chinese (or, even nicer, will Vista let me talk in Chinese)?

    The only thing I had to do when a new language was installed was to log off so I suppose a language is a per-user setting.

    Where is Dreamscene?

    1. Yes, i'm pretty sure i read that language is a per-user setting.
    2. Yes also, keyboard settings are a per-user setting.

    Yep, language is a per-user setting (although the system codepage isn't, so only unicode apps will be able to make full use of this). This can give some weird effects with runas, like having one IE window in English and the other in Japanese. Smiley
