When will it ever end?!?!?
2004-11-11 06:43:53 PM  
Headline is somewhat misleading - they're releasing it in Quechua, an indiginous Latin American language spoken by many Peruvians of Incan descent.

The accompanying picture is priceless...

2004-11-11 10:44:00 PM  
OK, so, help me understand...

M$ can bring Office to the Incas, but it can't to the Hebrews?
2004-11-11 10:44:07 PM

Oh great. Windows already shiats out enough. Now MS users have to worry about Montezuma's Revenge.

Or maybe it'll just be one of the included games.

I tried one of those marushka chocobars the other day. It wasn't nearly as good as the kind with almonds.

Ahhh.... Montezuma's revenge.

Another sweet Commodore 64 game from my wasted youth.

Didn't the Inca invent the BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH?

great performance by ray liotta on ER

I wonder if this language even has a word for "computer", let alone one for "blood-sucking, evil corporation".
2004-11-11 10:58:00 PM  
This marks the first time Microsoft has translated its software to an indigenous language of Latin America, and is aimed at boosting literacy programs largely among the poor.

Windows XP Home ed. price at $199.99.

Great plan, Microsoft.

They haven't dominated ALL of time yet, that's for when they launch windows backwards through time and the Shrike rips off your head when you turn on your computer.

Speaking of Microsoft-

What happened to the Avril's boob link from yesterday?
2004-11-11 11:00:07 PM  
Damn, linewalker busting out with the Puma Man ref, nice. Or is it Pyuma Man....

That pic was scrutinized more than the Zapruder film...

I wish my name was Chocobar
2004-11-11 11:10:06 PM  

No idea, but thank you for the props. Hell, thank you for getting the reference!
2004-11-11 11:11:04 PM  
Just be sure to watch out for those Spaniards!

Avril boob link? Do share!

What about a Klingon version?
2004-11-11 11:15:02 PM  
MS didn't forget Poland either.

Lumpmoose! I still have that game! No luck getting it to run with Windows XP though...

That was my first CD ROM game ever, though I don't remember where I got it from.
2004-11-11 11:21:14 PM  
NeedlesslyCanadian I've been hearing about that for a day or two, but I have seen nary a link. I didn't think she had enough boob to warrent any kind of attention. Somebody prove me wrong!
2004-11-11 11:23:23 PM  
So why was it removed from the main page?

[NSFW here's the pic NSFW]
2004-11-11 11:28:01 PM  
Hmm....are there any other pics from that event? Excited as I am that I might be looking at Avril's boobies, those could really be anyone's.

(Thanks though =) )
2004-11-11 11:33:06 PM  

Either way, they're nice boobies.
2004-11-11 11:35:15 PM  
Argh. I hate to be the guy who starts yelling "Linux" in a crowded Windows theater, but as I understand it's nowhere near as difficult to obtain Linux in different languages, as it is to obtain Windows in different languages.
2004-11-11 11:43:57 PM  
Yup, that's right, GreenAdder, as long as some huge geek with the necessary language skills has nothing to do on the weekend, Linux will be there.

I won't argue with that, they are nice boobies =)

Just wondering how anyone can tell they might be Avril's though...
2004-11-11 11:58:52 PM  
nice boobage. is that a big scar running acoss her belly, though?
2004-11-12 12:05:38 AM  

But aren't they *always* howling in Machu Picchu?

On an unrelated note, I always seem to get this unpleasant duty, coming late as I almost always do, to make the pun that is obvious, but has hitherto been missed. Here goes, and hold your noses:

If Microsoft did not put out a version of Windows in the language of the Inca, what, oh what, would the Inca-dinka-do?

\Apologies to "da Schnoz."

An Inca from Peru?
