Windows language handling sucks

The language bar will randomly change languages, and randomly disappear, and because it’s handled at an application-specific level (admittedly a largely sensible decision) this means restarting applications just to change the language. This pisses me off immensely. Almost to the point of “if Vista did it better I’d consider switching”, and I don’t even have that much to do with languages other than english.

I’ve not used this much on anyone else’s system, but haven’t done anything particularly crazy with it and it still sucks… soooo… I blame Windows. I’m almost certain mainstream Linux distros can handle this better, but know nothing about how OS X deals with it… shrug.
