The GUI is quite tolerable that way, the Dutch, well... hard to use, and the clunky translations are disturbing and distracting at times - but on Isaac I won't use Windows itself as a tool, only those programs that I absolutely must have and they still have their normal English UI.

(I'm hoping I'll be able to set Vista - when I can no longer avoid it - to "classical" look as well: I want the least amount of distraction from the UI. My only worry is I heard Windows now not only tries to hide extensions and files from you, but actual paths as well. I hope that's an option also, or at least tweakable...)
