I'm looking to implement Linux as an alternative to Windows in a Japanese office environment. The needed programs are what to be expected, word processing, spreadsheet, callendaring, and so on. Naturally everything needs to be in Japanese. Just something as Japanese friendly as possible, I guess. Thank you for your help.
I just installed fedora 6 and was surprised by the list of language options they had available. They do support Japanese. Ubuntu don't at this stage as far as I know but don't quote me on that. Either of these distros would be good as an alternative for windows.
Thanks for the suggestions. Japanese developer participation sounds good. Anything else that has been missed or helpful insights? I think that I will try to test the distro first and see how well people are able to interact with it, but I don't want to waste time with a distro that will not work well in a Japanese environment.
