Editorial A couple of years ago, a professor at my university had a very interesting thought exchange with the class I was in. We were a small group, and I knew most of them, they were my friends. Anyway, we had a talk about language purism - not an unimportant subject if you study English in The Netherlands.

my language and culture isn't my property and i'm not trying to make heaps of money with it either. if apple would only care about osx dominating computing, like a cultural nationalist might dream about his language becoming/staying important, they would be happy about anybody who wants to copy osx. but they aren't a cult/nation/political movement but a company.
