A thought for my fellow Slovenians...

Are your regional settings changed so that the currency is EUR and not SIT?

If not, your programs might not look alright these days. Also your Excel spreadsheets will look outdated!

Update 1:

Looks like Office 2007 is already Slovenia-EUR ready.

Update 2:

Looks like Vista is also smart!


And no, switching back to year 2006 doesn't get you back SIT. We tried! :)

Well, Vista isn't that smart, really :) Euro was set to default even back in 2006 (goes for RTM only, previous releases had SIT as default) []

Oh, and just a short tip ;) If you're using older keyboards, where Euro sign is not indicated on any of the keys - pressing RightAlt+E will get you that € in any (text) application [shortcut works with Slovenian keyboard layout...]

Ah. So Vista and Office2007 are not smart, just dum in a right way. :)

I wonder what would they (MS) do if Slovenia would get the Euro?

Big deal! There's always manual override. In Win2000 you just customize the currency settings and you're done. And you don't even have to use the dreaded "E" sign - while you can use ISO compliant "EUR" acronym. ;)
