View Thread: whats wrong with internationalization

    I do not understand why MS simply has not stopped manufacturing international versions of Windows.

    For Windows 2000 there are 26(?) Language Add-On's (MUIs) for lots of languages out there - which only need an english Operating System to be installed on.

    There are even more and better MUIs for Windows-XP.

    Having only one code base must be a huge advantage.

    But i guess they haven't done this for backwards compatibility reasons... Wink stupid!
