Yes, but you can change your keyboard to any language in "Settings >
Settings Manager > Keyboard > Layout" anyway. As far as the date
system goes; well, I'm not sure what you mean by "date system". If you
mean the clock format, that can be changed by alt-clicking the clock
in the it's panel and selecting properties.
