Tis so very true. I just have no knowledge on how or if people can use
this without English. I know the developers will need English, but I
don't know about users. Even if the foreign language group still knew or
had to know English, this could reduce the CD need for those of us who
are language challenged. Is that a PC way of saying English-only? :)
