  • I haven't seen it listed that way.
    Where are you seeing it listed like that?

    In my MSDN, I can see the English-UK (en-GB), and the English (en-US) downloads:

  • I haven't personally explored the difference, but, from other discussions here in the forums, it seems the UK(en-GB) is pre-configured with defaults for display-language, spelling/proofing, locale, currency, etc for UK.

    Windows8 is the first time MS have created a British-specific setup, and perhaps wanted it to be included in the "English" language downloads section, and make it "obvious" that it's now available:

  • i'm seeing like that at VLSC download, there are 2 .iso name SW_DVD5_Win_Pro_8.1_64BIT_Eng_Intl_MLF_X18-96633 and SW_DVD5_Win_Pro_8.1_64BIT_English_MLF_X18-96634

    But you are right, if burned DVD it label it as: "something"EN-GB"something" and something"EN-US"something,  so what the diference between EN-GB and EN-US. Course one is for UK and other for US, but technically speaking ...

  • Hi,

    I didn't find conclusive information so I decide to post this after checking.

    The downloads provided by Microsoft are like this:

    English = EN-US

    English International = EN-GB

  • I know what he is asking, because I have seen it before.  For example:

    Win10_EnglishInternational_x64.iso

    Win10_EnglishInternational_x32.iso

    The International English  includes various localized English Languages which Windows should support grammatically, like  AU, UK, Jamaica, Trinidad etc. It should also support the Keyboard layout, as there are International Keyboards.
