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.

The funny thing is when you talk to French people and they think that how they deal with 70+ is normal, and you have trouble explaining to them why it's odd. Many are just so used to it that they don't think about how 70+ follow a different pattern from the rest.
