    I don't know why cortana isn't available in the netherlands. I understand that they can't make cortana understand all languages, but why isn't it available for me, in the netherlands, to use the english cortana. Now i would need to change my system setting to english(what i don't want to do).
    And is it legal to change my settings and location to english and england while i'm in the netherlands?

    It is legal... It may affect your Store in terms of getting and updating Apps.

    Here are the OS versions, settings, etc. needed to get the various Cortanas: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/m...e-3fde582aecd4

    Cortana English for the Dutch market isn't very useful. Experiences differ, but I have not experienced a positive english languagepack listening Cortana. I have such a heavy Dutch accent, that Cortana misinterprets my works over half the time. I've noticed recently that the letter r is a problem. The spitting "g" and "ch" sounds seem suprisingly a bit better. But Cortana is not very useful still because geographical, social and market words and sentences are almost impossible for Cortana to understand. We truly needs a Dutch languagepack for Cortana to understand us. Joe Belfiore did say at build 2015 that the amount of languagepacks support would be ramped up starting from the second half of 2016. So yes, for the Dutch, although we keep patiently asking, will still have to wait another 12 months and hope for the best, however much demand there is for Cortana and how much sense it makes for Cortana Dutch language pack and Cortana experience to be ready for the Dutch market now. Patience is truly a virtue here.

    I'm from Bosnia, that means i'm Slaven, so without any doubt it is clear that i have 'heavier' pronounciation of the letter 'r', yet cortana understands me perfectly, and also makes no mistakes when saying my name (guess it's a pure luck that my name's Harry :d).
    Maybe you're not that good at English, don't get me wrong, just try to soften that 'r'.
