I added the Saudi Arabia version. I almost installed the Egyptian version, then I thought maybe Algerian as I am a huge Souad Massi fan. But Saudi had the most features in windows 10 so I chose it. In the process I turned my default.preferred language to Arabic and it took me half an hour to get my interface back to english!

It's not easy learning to type Arabic. If anyone finds a good online typing resource please post it.

The Arabic script is so beautiful. I can't wait to make it through the first few months of this language

If you mean Egyptian keyboard, Iraqi keyboard, etc. They are barely different. The only difference I know is that some keyboards use ي but without the two dots and some letters are in different places nothing more.
