    Uh-oh. Bug dependencies. ...

    You make a very valid point, though.

    I actually ment Community, not just in Linux. Maybe i've led a sheltered life though anyhoos it's great to communicate with people who have well thought out and at times challenging opinions. Thanks

    Some communities are not too friendly to newbies. They expect people to figure things out themselves. Here all work together to solve problems.

    My boyfriend and I talk about coding while we're cuddling. I know what you mean though. One of my friends (before we met, this was online) said "but I thought you were a girl. why are you coding?" Apparently between my 1500 kid school and his 2000 kid school, I was the only girl to take a comp sci class. I think one of the guys in my last programming class said something about why's there a girl on the first day of classes too. Then I showed them up by having a fully written, debugged, and commented assignment finished before the first class period ended on a two-day assignment. No more girl comments (at-the-time 60 wpm typing probably had a lot to do with that...now up to 80)

    As a women in a very male dominated career (more than IT is even!) I must say I have met many women who seem to think that just because I am in the job I am I should be some sort of gender role model. I would like to say that after 16 years I hold my own and then some in my job and have nothing but respect from the people I work with (read guys), and I beleive it comes from not actually looking for respect or acknowledgement that I am a women in a traditionally male role, just another professional.

    I think the same should happen with women in IT fields.

    Like my job not all women are interested in the same things we are, many still prefer hair and makeup over tech anyday, and thats never going to change. Some more women may come into the fray but it wont be enough to probably lose the stigma attatched (unfortunately) that seems apparent today from some guys.

    Thats just my opinion, by the way I am an Aircraft Mechanic, have been since finishing high school in 91 and have heard a LOT of crap from guys over the years from I must be a lesbian to I must be a feminist to do what I do. I have a thick skin though, and am happily attatched (to another mechanic but a guy lol) and we have 2 beautiful little girls!

    How do you think we alienate them?

    The fact is there is something to be said for nurture and we (society) tend to give girls dolls as they grow up. Also the link posted by aysiu was great (no mater how long it took me to read it)

    That being said I dont think this is something ubuntu should address it. we should make ubuntu as open to everyone as possible but not target any one group

    I did here and interesting quote the other day a minority group was speaking about affirmative action and the quote went something like. When you give a group special privileges or attention what you are really saying to that group is that you are to weak to make it on your own.

    I feel that this is reason enough for us to make ubuntu as friendly as we can to all users without focusing on any one group

    So maybe left handed men are the best, right handed men are second best, left hand woman are second worst, and right handed woman are the worst.
