If you go back a few versions of Windows.

It took more time for the various LIPs to be released.

If you go back as far as Vista, you might have to wait until Windows 7 was about to be released to get the last few Vista LIPs.

With each successive version, the amount of time you have to wait for every LIP to be released.

Until finally, with Windows 8.1, all of the LIPs were released by the time of the Windows 8.1 GA (General Availability)!

I don't mind being robbed of the opportunity to have all of the various announcement blogs for each.time a LIP is released.

Truly, I don't. Because I serve at the pleasure of the customer and thus have no other choice but to be pleased at the much faster turnaround of all of the LIP languages.

It feels great to be doing so much for our customers, and I am proud of the work of our IPMs, IPEs, and Localizers accomplished so quickly that I could replace the dozens of blogs with this one single blog to let all of you, my readers (and our customers) to know what they were able to provide... 😏😏😏
