Great to have you on board lilandra!
Liitle bit of trivia: with Breezy under way, we have a woman in helm as project manager: JaneW. Yes, she uses a nasty whip
Hi all. I'm a female user of ubuntu too :] I hope to see more linuxchix here and wherever they can be.
Recently i've joined a group of linux users from my city... and there is only one female more... ;P We hope to have more linuxchix in our group ;]

OFFENSIVE!Originally Posted by BB
I take no issue in the praise of contributions of others, but to do so by using stereotypes wont help get this forum more support. This isn't a male vs female thing. Your statements could easily be gender reversed and you'd derserve the same response as the one I'm providing.
Try reading this:
IT men are awesome, they're bright, focused than more females in the IT work space. So to top it off, men can do the brain work that probably some women can't do.
My friend, I understand the intent of your statement was to praise the contributions of females in the IT workplace. However, it's not necessary to put one down in order to praise another.

have you joined the linuxchix email groups too?
if only i'd found it three years ago
I guess I'm just looking for some reassurance from other people who are using it, and who aren't biased like my boyfriend!
First let me say welcome. Then let me say the honest truth- we are all a little biased too. But there is a reason for our string bias.
No spyware, no viruses. I leave my Ubuntu box naked on my cable link (would nuke my xp machine). Programs are free and fellow users are nice.Our knowledge base will here covers lots of thing people want to do with computers. If you have por-linux friends, they can help you (this is biggest barrier for people not in your shoes)
There are problems though. Some are hardware doesn't work. Windows programs won't run in Linux (except for a few that are kind of forced onto Linux with WINE, and programs on both platforms). It will proabably mess up your computer warenty.
Either way...its all good!

You should try the Live-CD, that way you can find out what Ubuntu is like without installing anything on your 'puter.I haven't yet made the transfer to Ubuntu cos I'm a tiny bit paranoid about going into the unknown.
Yeah, this is such a great place for getting unbiased opinionsI guess I'm just looking for some reassurance from other people who are using it, and who aren't biased like my boyfriend!
Me, I think Ubuntu like totally ownz all the other OSes.
Okay, now I'm confused. Did Poofy just overwrite Chaniston's post with his own reply to Chaniston?
