UBUNTU Studio Revisited

,----[ Quote ]
| As a side note, there is another advantage of Linux desktops, that I have
| noticed. If you install multiple languages on the PC, then you can boot in
| which ever language you want. This is nice for me, because I sometimes have
| people that need to use my PC that only speak Spanish. In that case I can
| sign out and sign back in with the language changed to Spanish and all
| applications and all menus are now in Spanish. Each user of the PC can have
| their sign on to use whatever language they want. How neat is that!
|
| This would actually be a good thing for schools here in Panama that want the
| students to learn better English. The PC could be brought up in whichever
| language is most appropriate. You can’t do that with a Windows PC. I don’t
| know if a Apple PC allows a multiple languages option or not.
|
| This would be a good display option for PC stores in Panama that wanted to
| demonstrate Linux in both languages. It might even open up a new market for
| them.

In KDE, for quite some time in fact, it has been possible to work with
different languages in different applications at the same time.
