Nothing wrong here, we do use simplified chinese. The chinese majority is misleading although i would have thought seagate understands local situation since they have been here long..............

Actually he does have a point. The official lang for SG should be Singapore (English) but pple see Chinese majority assume Chinese, such as the case for HK............

we use UK or USA english spelling. Even Australian (some slight differences) english is used here.

Officially, the national language is Malay... our official language for documents is English.

So which should Seagate list? The national language? The official language? Or one particular form of Chinese that ppl here can use?

side note : since TS eat so full, post this in EDMW lor. Will be better received, can PCW harder

no lah this is not an official statement about the working language, it's just a choice of language for the EULA besides (american) english. if user prefer to choose other languages for the EULA, then the other langs available to corresponding countries are there to choose.

Sounds like you are making a mountain out of a molehill ain't it.

Doesn't Microsoft use the same naming convention?

It's a fricking harddisk for crying out loud! It's asking you whether you want to use Simplified Chinese as your language setting.

So next time don't buy hard disk from Seagate if you think the hard disk is a communist chinese spy because it came from their Wuxi plant.

You do not have a point. Singapore has 4 official languages. English is just 1 of the 4. National language for Singapore is Malay. Get the hostory right will help you.

Read the topic again. TS is asking y Chinese was used in the program installer. So what do we use for daily transactions, education, road sign in SG? Korean? Egyptian? Hebrew? Hint not Malay...............

Edit: Read HARDER, try a magnifying glass........

My bad, i juz cannot resist flaming him although i already remove the earlier one........

the national language that 15% of the population spoke, not promoted at all in the country. it stays as the national language for the sake of it.
