What should be the default locale: user or system locale?
If no preference was given in the
ui_last/gui_language, the current Windows version tries to find out which locale should be used on the gui using
GetUserDefaultLCID call (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd318135(v=vs.85).aspx).
Another option would be to use the
GetSystemDefaultLCID which is not dependent on the user's settings but on the system settings (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd318121(v=vs.85).aspx)
Any opinion which one should be used?

I agree, but we have cases when the user has an English OS, with Finnish keyboard and locale. dt starts in Finnish in those cases...
What if we make it an option in the installer the language selection? It might actually work, but I have never tried before.

What language setting does Windows itself use? Does it really show up in English when the user settings are set to Finnish? :-O
That being said, I have on my TODO list a point to bring back and fix a prefs setting for selecting the language from within dt.
