If we do a distribution - or recommend an existing on - can it be in
english? A few of us aren't multi-lingual...
I got the US-version in the toolbar, but all the web browser and some other
programs are still in German. I last used German in high-school, and can't
even remember to count past ten in it...
Maybe I'm stupid and missing something...
