    Windows Single language


    I went to shop to purchase a windows 8 laptop. The vendor said that it has got Windows 8 single language installed. What are the disadvantages of Single Language OS? Won't it open websites written in different languages? Won't Google translate work on this?

    It's just junk that vendors use to make people buy their computers.

    It doesn't mean anything, everything will work as normal

    Hello Dr. Chetan, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    "Single language OS" means that the Windows 8 installation media only includes one language, and that will be the only language selectable whenever you reinstall Windows 8. That's all. Your Windows 8 will still otherwise fully function as normal.
