    Pardon my flaming, but at least Gnome release actual releases rather than the "this is the final release, but it's not actually the final final release, this is just for developers mostly."

    The marketing doublespeak that the KDE developers employed in the KDE4 release really soured me on their desktop environment (oh it's, KDE4, but not KDE 4.0, and really you should wait until KDE 4.1). Hooray for choices! Thanks Gnome developers, it looks great!

    Another responder has posted the same response I was about to offer.

    You can use a variety of methods, but often I just open a terminal, type "export LANG=en_US.UTF-8" or whatever locale you want to switch to and then run the program from there by typing the program's name.

    If only there were a property to allow setting the locale in the shortcut/launcher thing...

    I too find it annoying that only one language may be used at a time, but you know it's worse with Apple and MacOS X... I recently set up a Mac Mini with OS X.5. I selected Japanese as the language and when it came to registering the product, it would not let me enter a U.S. address for my home! Apple, for whatever reason, assumes that since I want to use Japanese as the language interface that I must live in Japan. What a preposterous assumption?!
