Scottish Version of Windows sent in Error

Windows 98 Recall

It has come to our attention that a few copies of the Scotland version of Windows 98 may have accidentally been shipped outside Scotland.

If you have one of the Scotland editions you may need some help understanding the commands. The Scotland edition may be recognised by looking at the opening screen. It reads WINDAES 98, Ye Ken, with a background picture of William Wallace superimposed on a St. Andrews Cross.

It is shipped with a Mel Gibson screen saver.

Also note the Recycle Bin is called The Bucket.
My Computer is called Thon Computer Thingie.
Dialup Networking is called Phone the Bhoys.
Control Panel is known as the Dashboard.
Hard Drive is referred to as the tractor.
Floppies are referred to as thae wee plastic disc things.

Other features:
Instead of an error message you get a windae covered with a picture of a neep.

OK = 'ats fine
cancel = na na ma loon
reset = Och ye'd be as weel startin again
