    I've read this article before, in fact, have it saved and try to pass it on as much as I can. I started with Linux a while back now, Slackware being my flavor of choice.

    I think this article expresses a lot, not only about Linux but women in computers in general. I've always been the computer addict in my family. And it wasn't seen as a good thing, but more of a "don't you have something better you want to do with your spare time?". Which I've learned to ignore. I enjoy gaming, web development, programming, so on and so forth.
    And I think it's a lot harder to come to a site such as AO where it is mainly populated by males, who think of this being a manly interest. And even though most deny it, you can sense it with some of the comments you read, in IRC, in the forums, through anonymous AP's. Unlike males, I feel like there's a constant need to have to prove yourself in this community. There have been several times I've been told that I never contribute anything. No, never. I just think that so many guys are blinded by the fact that I'm female and have already made up their minds that I'm incompetent that no matter what I say or do, the response will be the same. (You never contribute, you know nothing, you're female, you're a stupid bitch, etc..)

    So all in all, I am inspired by this article. Makes all those comments which make you feel less about yourself, seem unimportant. I know more than I get credit for, but that's okay, because if you're too blind to see it...it's your loss, not mine.

    Formatting my server because someone hacked into it sounds pretty boring to me...

    More woman would use it if :-

    1)The interface was bright pink

    2)You got a free copy of womans own magazine with every purchase

    3)It sympathised with the user a week from every month, and wouldn't mind if the user hit the keyboard a little.

    4)Was laptop compatible so they could play on it while cooking dinner / cleaning up

    5)Randomly generated a kitten or heart picture every few mins

    6)Played girly sounds whenever they done something right

    7)Men didnt
