OK so I don’t get why Windows 8 is better than Windows 7 or Windows XP? Other than offering more languages.

“Windows 8 targets emerging markets with support for 14 new languages” because anyone that has vista/win 7 doesn’t need an upgrade, so they need a gimmick.

Switching between languages isn’t a feature. Not being able to, is a flaw.
I’ve seen 3rd party software installed on windows pcs dating back to windows 2000 to correct this flaw.
