Microsoft to speak the language of the Ancient Sun Worshippers


In a recent update, Microsoft announced that it will have it’s version of windows in the Incan language.

To give it a background, as the wikipedia puts it –

The Incan empire was the largest empire in the Pre-Columbian America and one of the largest empires at the time of its collapse. It rose in the highlands of Peru around 1200. The official language of the empire was Quechua. 

The Quechua being a very old language, some of the words need to be translated to the nearest equivalents. Like for eg. the File is called kipu (KEE-poo) which is the ancient practice of recording information in a system of knotted strings and the Internet is called Llika – which is the word for Spider Web. 🙂
