(most) Laptops comes with a pre-installed OS in a specific language. I know you can change the language through "Regional Language Services".

What is the difference between laptop (Win10 home) with
1. pre-installed English OS, changed into Taiwanese through "Regional Language Services"
and
2. pre-installed Taiwanese OS


My understanding of the way to change OS language is as follows:
- The service is FREE.
- Access the Control Panel, and then download the desired language pack via the Windows Update 'Options'. Go back to the Control Panel and select from the available Regional Language Services.

Thank you.

I don't believe there is any, other than the fact Taiwanese would be installed alongside English. In a new Taiwanese only install, English wouldn't be present.


Yes, the language service is free.
