    Does any know whether the Windows 7 RC will be available in new languages such as French?

    Thanks :)

    I think the languages will be the same as what was with the beta. Typically MS releases English, German, Japanese and Russian (I think) in wave 0. Then the language packs shortly after, which I know is not the same as a language edition, but better than not being able to understand it.

    Hi who,

    My name is Ron, and I’m part of the Windows Outreach Team. I thought I’d just drop off some info that might help out.

    Multi-language support in your Beta versions looks like this: the 32-bit version supports English, German, Japanese, Hindi, and Arabic. The 64-bit version supports English, German, Japanese, and Arabic (no Hindi).

    You can pretty much count on that transferring to the RC and then you’ll most likely see the other languages coming out in a similar wave like previous OSs.

    Hope this helps!

    Cheers,
    Ron

    hmm i thought there would be some MUI pack beta's released. I am seeing all sorts of other stuff released in beta form for Win7. WSUS 3.0 SP2, RSAT, MDT, WAIK. Sadly no MUI packs though.

    Yeah that's what I thought too, Hindi and Arabic but not French...

    Mais c'est pour cette raison que je garde mon Vista pour le moment...:)

    Pretty obvious, there are more who work for MS that speak Hindi than French.
