    Hey friends,

    I`ve just preordered from the UK store for education since I am currently staying in the UK for one year to study. Will I be able to use OS X 10.5 just as if I had ordered a German version, i.e. is the whole OS multilingual and allows me to select a standard language during the installation process?

    I searched this forum and the web, but couldn`t find info from reliable sources. I know Tiger was multilingual, but I do not want to rely just on that fact!

    Thanks for all your help in advance.

    Thank you very much! I`ve looked on the corresponding UK page, which is not yet updated and still shows me that Tiger is multilingual but (as always?) the US gets the new info first :rolleyes:
