comment How can I speed up switching users in Windows 8?
Windows 8.1 update 1 seems to have made it worse for me, with about 7 seconds of black screen between the users. I also have to type in the PIN each time because I have an MS account... It seems they didn't give much thought to multiple users, which is a shame.

As Darius suggested, I went ahead and confirmed that in a computer shop - I checked on two computers with no internet connection, and it just worked (one of them was similar to the one I'm looking for). I think you can roll back the edit - it doesn't seem like the language pack is required.

Is this a bad question for SU? Any pointers? I searched and couldn't find an answer, and I think it is clear.

@Darius - That's a good idea. They don't have physical shops, but I guess I can find someone who does. Thanks!

@Ramhound - I think a "language pack" is used to change the Windows UI, that is not what I'm asking. I want to have Windows in English, but be able to read and write Japanese.

For the record - I called Microsoft supports and they said it should be OK, but they weren't confident enough.

Not bad! It does have some minor issues (like a small delay when changing tabs), but it shows both the favicon and a lock icon, which is very nice. I'll use it for a while, see how it goes, and I'll come back to accept this answer when I'm happy :) Thanks!

Please note that this question is not about ubuntu, or any specific OS. I just chose a link with ubuntu screenshot.
