Me: chooses English for language, French for keyboard (because that's what my keyboard happens to be), speaks Dutch natively

Windows: oh great! You've told me to display everything in Windows in English. So I'll just show you the Windows store in Dutch, French and English (edit, and Russian in one of the Store tabs, for God knows why), all at once! Because who cares about your language settings anyway, right. You appear to be from Belgium from your IP, so obviously you speak both of these languages despite your personal preferences. Additionally, have some Candy Crush Soda Saga that you've never asked for.

And the application that you wanted to install - Ubuntu? Fuck you, you can't install it, for "reasons" that we've conveniently put in French, because you obviously speak that, right.

HOW ABOUT YOU FUCKING GO FUCK YOURSELF, MICROSOFT?!

    Inb4 someone tells me some of the following:
    - cheap hardware
    - driver error
    - user error
    - obscure drivers
    - wtf have you done with your machine

    This is a fresh installation. I'm currently in the midst of configuring it and I'm already having shit like this. Go figure. I'll even send you the entire fucking image if you so insist.

    @Bitkris yes, I had it set to English (Belgium) with French keyboard exclusively, then changed it to English (United States) under the assumption that perhaps Microsoft just half-assed the Belgian language pack, and the fucking issues are still present. Because who cares about language preferences..? I can't even...

    While I'm completely with you on the fact that this is just utterly stupid, if you ever have this kind of issue again, don't hesitate to post it here. There are a lot of languages on devRant and I'm sure people would be glad to help you translate things.

    If you need a translation of the "reasons" @ me, I'm a native French speaker

    @Brosyl @frickerg after changing the locale (by lack of a better term, no idea what it's called in Windows) to English (US) and rebooting, the entire app store got changed into English as it should.. so most likely Microsoft just half-assed their local English language packs, haha. Thanks a lot for the offer though, I'll keep it in mind ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    @Condor I have similar issues with the keyboard layout. It is always strictly in Swiss German except when I use OneNote, it switches between UK, US, FR and DE... No idea how but just let me use my Laptop in English language with a Swiss German keyboard layout in every application ffs!

    Windows started having language issues with the previous feature update.
    Half the UI in Danish, other half in English.

    @xewl it's not russian. It's not even ukranian.

    @Pogromist Looks cyrillic or something, I can't ever be sure as I'm a "Western"
  • 2
    @xewl ok, just consider that there's more than Russian language that uses Cyrillic.
  • 2
    @Pogromist but what language is it then? I mean, to us Westerners it all looks very similar.. I can make out Chinese, Japanese and Thai because their writing style is pretty easily distinguishable, but in this case I also made the assumption that this alphabet is Russian. I'm not sure what other languages use this Cyrillic alphabet. Maybe @irene and @BlueNutterfly can chime in? I recall that they live in Eastern Europe, whereas I'm pretty much as Western as it gets over here (Belgium). Well aside from France, Spain and Portugal of course. Not the United Kingdom, they're not part of the club anymore ๐Ÿ˜

    @Condor that's probably Bulgarian. Or maybe Belarus. It sounds like Ukrainian word but written not like Ukrainian. There's no ะซ letter in Ukrainian.

    Also Bulgarian is one of few Western Slavic languages still using Cyrillic script.

    @Condor google translate detects language as Belarusian. And I don't find any word In Russian that uses more than one 'ั‹'. Russian republics uses Cyrillic, but what surprised me is even Mongolians use it.

    @Pogromist that word is definitely not Russian (russian native here ๐Ÿ˜„)

    @irene I am! :) Kind of had a lot of change in life happen all in a very short time, so didn't really know if I'd really want to return... But here I am :)

    @BlueNutterfly great that you're okay

    @irene More than just okay, honestly... These last few months have been the calmest of my entire life.
