Default Windows XP Professional in Russian

A guy I know seems to think that a big feature of Windows XP Professional is the ability to change the start button, control panel, etc., basically everything into Russian. Is this true? He said he saw one of his friend's computers with Russian XP, and he says he "thinks" it was XP Professional. I told him that it's a hell of a gamble just to shell out $400 for XP Professional on a thought, especially if this ability to change everything to Russian in XP Pro proves untrue.

It is called Windows Blinds.


Here is an example program that does it. I think there are some free ones too.

Problem is with windows blinds it eats up memory and speed.
