    A co-worker and I are having a disagreement on whether or not Mac OS X is different in the UK versus the US. Are there any GUI differences?

    Is there a difference?

    no. simple as that.

    it is the same everywhere... all just depends on what language you choose... but then the only difference is the language that you use.

    most definitely no differences.

    There have been minor things like iPhoto shop not working in Europe or the iTunes music store... but that's all sorted now... and they are just extras

    There are no differences.

    Ever since OS 9 came out we have been using the international version of mac os. In 8.6 and earlier there was a british version B8.6 with "wastebasket" instead of "trash", but in OS 9 it went international Z9.0, replacing the wastebasket.

    I only remember it because all the British magazines were complaining that we lost the "wastebasket". Anyway, if you check OS 9 it has a Z model number, and OS 8 a B model number.
