    If I install Windows on my PC and choose 'English (United Kingdom)', 'English
    (Australian)' or any other non-American English, I have to see a
    language-switching button [EN] on both the logon screen and the taskbar.

    Logically, if I don't choose 'English (United States)', then I probably
    don't live in the US and probably don't want the option to switch to that
    language to be sitting in front of me all the time.

    Worse yet, it's not easy for the average user to get rid of - in fact I need
    to remove US from my list, then go to 'Administrative' and then click 'Copy
    to Reserved Accounts'. Too much work.

    I suggest that if a user selects a non-American English, they shouldn't need
    to worry about getting rid of any other settings. 'English (United Kingdom)'
    should mean just that and only that.
