    What's your OS & system language?

    hi, folks. given that CA is so multinational, i thought it'd be helpful to informally poll the members about some of their comp system details, to help me plan how to best distribute a digital calendar applet featuring CA members' art (see this TD thread for details). i'm using progamming software that is cross-platform, but each type of system has its own peculiarities and "special needs." system language is a factor also for some systems that don't play well with Unicode (essential for foreign language systems).

    so, what Operating System do you use, and what language does your 'puter speak?

    i'd set up a poll thread for this but i don't know enough about the range of possibilities to set up the poll selections intelligently.

    thanks!

    I had this dream which involved a super fast station where I could render 3d images with lightning speed. One station where I could have everything on it.

    So I heard about win XP pro X64 and bought myself an English version

    Very very nice but hardly anything works on it... my Canon scanner isnt compatible so I e mailed them to know if they intended to eventually offer drivers for X64 and they told me: " X64 is a very powerful station and we only have drivers for ONE model of scanner and we dont intend yet to produce drivers for the model you have..."
    well this blows, good thing I kept the old computer

    my Digital camera doesnt have drivers too
    my MP3 player isnt compatible also
    I also know there s something wrong with my graphic card

    but, yes, it is fast... very fast !!

    at least Photoshop, Illustrator, 3d Studio max, CATIA V5 and other softwares are working...
