AX 2012:Client Calendar lookups do not consider local system regional settings

A strange design change in AX 2012 Client calendar look ups observed.

To give you a brief, until AX 2009,we considered AX client calendar taking the local client system setting. Meaning, if we go to windows >> change the date, time settings and change the first day of the week as monday;my expectation with AX 2009 is, if I do this modification and open my AX client and then go to any of the date field and click Calendar lookup then I should be able to see the calendar for this month starting with day as Monday.

Difference between inventory marking, Reservation and Batch reservation.

Marking is very similar to a physical reservation where you are saying that this item from the receipt will be "applied" or "allocated" to this issue. However, with marking there is also a financial implication. Marking overrides the financial cost of the issue. This means that FIFO, or Weighted average (or other costing method) is ignored on the issue. Instead the cost of the issue will be set to the cost of the receipt that you are marking against.
