Features, Office In the comments on our editorial about language purism and the Psystar case, it became quite clear that language is a subject almost everyone has an opinion on - not odd if you consider that language is at the very centre of what makes us "human". Since this appears to be a popular subject, let's talk about the influence computing has had on two very minor aspects of the Dutch language.

Atleast you get to type in your language, leaving the punctuation aside... Indians, on the other hand, almost never have the luxury of typing in their language. The indic fonts are hard to get, and the indian keyboards are very rare. Most of the time my friends try to type telugu or so in english and it's awfully painful to read considering how I try to apply english pronuciations to those arbitrarily transliterated messages..


Seriously? I may not be able to type it, or understand it, but I searched (google) around for enough Indic fonts to be able to view the various blocks in Unicode.

What OS do you use?
