    Do "the ladies" like your computer? why?

    I love my ubuntu. But my view is from a 25 year old male hacker.

    My question is do ladies like using your Ubuntu computer?

    Why do they enjoy using it.

    Have you went out of your way to make it nice?

    Any perspectives at all.

    The Mrs has no real preference to OSes if that is what you mean. As far as she is concerned Firefox and Thunderbird is the same in Windows or Ubuntu, which largely it is. But when she uses a Windows PC she does comment that it is not as smooth as mine and the default font is much blockier in Windows and not as pleasing to the eye.

    depends if the GF is a computer nerd or not. Most of the GFs didn't care, if facebook worked. I did date one that genuinely found it cool; but she bought a mac and now sings of apple, not linux... oh well.

    Re: Do "the ladies" like your computer? why?

    my fiance used only windows and not much of a geek or savvy user.. when i butchered vista partition, she had to use my arch linux.... she made a username, customized emerald themes, and used it. Not thinking she knew much the difference in what she was doing honestly, i threw debian sid in its place. This morning she actually said "i like arch better than debian why did you put this crap on here", claiming about boot speeds and wireless.
    i was speechless, but agreed, and here i sit on arch.
    If you are having trouble and need help...or just bored and want somebody to talk to, feel free to message me on any of the IM clients listed in the profile .

    My girlfriend gets a kick out of the fire plugin but besides that, she doesn't realize a big difference. She knows it's linux but as I use arch, she doesn't get the best impression for "ease of use".

    My Fiance has ubuntu studio loaded on her PC (dual boots with WinXP). She does graphic design for a living.

    Re: Do "the ladies" like your computer? why?

    Is it just me or do these choices boil down to "yes, they think ubuntu is 1337" or "no". Where's the "yes, she uses it, but gets annoyed because she doesn't know where stuff is" option?

    all my wife cares about is that it works and she knows where everything she downloads go, as well as the conversion from being a book worm to a geek when she talks to her friends about computers and they ask her what kind of computer she has.
