Make windows use only chinese characters?

  YinHoNg 23:22 20 Sep 2005

Hi. I'm running an english version of xp home on my desktop machine but i was wondering if there was any way that i could make everything so that it displays chinese characters? Such as icon names, menu.... everything in fact. I know there are chinese versions of windows but i was wondering if there was an easier and, to be frank, cheaper way of doing it?

If you want to display everything in chinese then you will need to buy the chinese version of XP

Thanks for all those links. They were helpful, but they mainly describe inputting chinese characters. What i want is a totally chinese based OS, where even the start button is written in chinese....

Is this possible?
