do a merry dance installing the langpack and trying to bully it into the UI
language and locale you want, on Ubuntu you're loosing a fighting battle
either way because it forces it to the locale of you OS. <massive sigh>

You're making things up here. On all systems, LO will default to the
system's (Operating System's) language if that corresponding language
is installed for LibreOffice.
If you want a different one, go to Tools|Options → Languages and pick
the language.
Same procedure on every OS.

And you're completely missing the point that Jelle made (and that
exclusively applies to the Windows version):
The installer itself is localized and comes up with the language of the OS.

I personally think that this is a great feature, and while a few
immigrants or emmigrants will be presented with a version of the OS
itself they don't understand, it is nothing that should be reverted.

If you cannot change the regional settings of your user account, then
those people should by now heard of

I have no insight on hard it would be to add a button "use english"
for the installer - but in any case: File an issue in buzilla, just
discussing it here won't change anything.
