    Is OS X basically identical in every country Apple sells? The only difference in each local market is the language setting?

    Thanks for confirming that. So, are all Apple-made software such as iLife, Aperture, Final Cut, and others identical in every country Apple sells, while the only difference is the language selection which the user can freely select at the time of installation?

    yes its all the same except the documentation and retail packaging might have different languages printed on them (im not sure).

    the software uses the language that was chosen when first installing Mac OS X or first booting your new Mac.

    True, my Dutch retail package is Dutch and the documentation is Dutch, but the DVD contains all languages. :)

    It is the same, the packaging is the only thing that changes, which is why i buy software when i go to the states (cheaper)
