I was hoping and praying that my POS Fujitsu would hold out until Leopard was released but the spiteful , recalcitrant SOB died on me yesterday morning so I've got to buy a new computer NOW . As I said in the title , I am in Japan , and both my Japanese wife and I will be using the new iMAc with yours truly being the main user . I read this on the Japanese site : Your Mac can be ordered with an English language (U.S.) style keyboard, or Japanese - the choice is yours. The Mac OS X operating system supplied with your Mac is multilingual so can be set up in English and a large range of international languages. Does this mean that the computer can be operated both in English and Japanese ? I will be new to Mac and , although my command of Japanese isn't too shoddy , I surely don't want to master the learning curve in it ! My wife , of course , would much prefer to operate the computer in her native language as well . Could someone please explain how this multilingual operating system works ? Thanks in advance .
