Will the UK version change 'Center' to 'Centre' ?

So, if one of the justifications for the ridiculous UK prices of WV is that it has to be regionalised, will "security center" become "security centre" etc?

I would imagine that this is not very high on Mr Gates' to-do list.

Nope, they won't. I was at a love-in in Redmond the other week for journalists and one of the people they put up to talk to us about Vista was the woman in charge of the quite amazing localisation team which has worked on things like languages, fonts etc for various non-English versions of the OS. One of the UK journalists asked if with all the resources thrown at localisation they could possibly get around to spelling "centre" properly for the UK English version. She looked a bit sheepish and said that it hadn't really cropped up as an issue.

That's a shame.

"Media Center" really grates with me on my laptop.

I'll stick with XP for now then.

I'm not sure that's a particularly good reason not to upgrade!
