    "Linux for ladies" shirt

    Something in me died when I saw that the Ubuntu babydoll shirts now have the standard slogan on them rather than "Linux for ladies." I really wanted one of those, and didn't know they were going away! A quick Google search showed me that they generated some controversy, which, I guess, is understandable. I don't know, I liked the shirt because I think most OSes would shy away from being associated with "ladies," and this made it seem like Ubuntu was loud and proud about an operating system with "womanly" values. You know? 'Cause girls RAWK.

    Since that shirt was scrapped amid controversy, is there a chance that a warehouse somewhere in Slough contains a treasure trove of unwanted "ladies" Ubuntu shirts? Were they buried in a New Mexico desert? _Is there any way I can get one?_ Points for people who can tell me of anyone I might want to talk to about this.

    I can see why people would want the standard "human beings" babydoll shirt. But, I want the one with womanly pride! Uh, if anyone can help me get my grubby, womanly mitts (worn out from all my womanly pursuits, such as Python coding and modular website design) on one. Thanks!

    You can't be a lady -- there are no ladies or woman (don't mean to offend some readers) allowed in these forums. Its in the Code of Conduct!

    "Hello, Ladies..."

    I do think that the age old mantra of "Linux/*nix is not for girls" (unless of course they are in a shiny devil suit aka BSD girl), is kinda past it's point and time, women are tech savvy and we just need to get over it.

    Have you tried dropping Canonical a line? Otherwise I guess the only way to get one would be to buy someone elses.
