    No, Sorry, but it isn't available. Microsoft Windows 8 Release Preview only has the languages listed above. I checked the "Language" section in the Control Panel and it says "A language pack isn't available" when I added Hungarian.

    I'm not a dude. :p

    And I know about EN-GB in the betas/RCs. MS are swearing blind it'll be available for the RTM though.

    I'm just pernickety - American spellings and grammar have always got on my nerves for some reason, and I'm just excited that it's going to be fixed (written Australian English is virtually identical to British English).

    I never said it was. I know it's Microsoft's error, which I was alluding to with this:

    MS not providing language packs for their development versions is plain stupid, if you ask me. It's the usual "everybody speaks American" mental state, and they're missing out on testing their MUI system top-to-bottom.

    The other language versions are a red-herring - the language is pre-installed, which doesn't test the installation/uninstallation system, and if there aren't boxes of other languages to install, how are you meant to test language switching?

    Rant over. Stupid Microsoft. :ranting:

    Instructions for installing it. 1. Download the iso. 2. Mount it. 3. Run "LPKSetup.exe" 4. Click "Install display language" 5. Browse the mounted iso, click the folder of the language you wanna to install, and click the lp.cab file. 6. Click continue, agree the to agreement and install. BTW, only 1 language is pre-installed and that is your system language.

    Sorry, I think I'll have to download a better .iso language pack file. Will finish uploading at about 2000 HKT.
