I don't think that's a valid assumption. Many of us choose French as
default language, but we wouldn't want to be placed in the France
timezone. Of course, Windows does ask for "Location", and it should at
least use that for a timezone guess, but the language selection
shouldn't be a factory, imo. Unless you want to get into bloated code
such as if (Location == CANADA && Language == FR) Timezone = Quebec.
Then again, choosing Seattle isn't better either. I would just start
with GMT as default. Makes everyone happy.
