Newton Glossary

An almost definitive guide to Newton-related terms and trivia.


A term coined by Anton Balaban to describe the process of using the Russian language on a Newton device. Russification generally involves installing Cyrillic fonts, a special keyboard layout, system patches to modify various bits of text, and other software packages to localize the English language version of Newton OS.

Once a Newton device has gone through this process, it is said to have been Russified.
