Vista Ultimate and Language packs coverage
Hello,

I will receive a new Japanese desktop Dell with Vista Ultimate and Office,
both Japanese. I plan to change the interface to English and have 2 questions:

1. After changing to English, are the Windows interface + applications
exactly the same as if I had purchased an English Vista? (no hidden Japanese
somewhere?)

2. Office Japanese. Will the Ultimate version be able to change Office to
English as well?
If no, is there a way to exchange the Japanese version to English (e.g. from
Microsoft)?

Thank you

My estimate is 99% the same. As for some Japanese somewhere, I don't know
about hidden parts, I only know about a few parts that I saw ^_^

I don't know. For Office 97 through 2003 there were English User Interface
Packs, which are enormously hard to find in Microsoft's web site. They cost
1,050 yen and are foreign to some Universes (I had MSDN Universal at the
time but still had to pay extra). I only tried the XP version. I estimate
it converted about 95%, broke around 1%, and didn't convert around 4% (rough
estimates based on what I saw). For Office 2007 I haven't seen if there's a
similar pack.
