"Does she? Please show me where. A quote from the text would be nice."

Umm...maybe if you actually read the article you could see that? How about the first paragraph:

"We're smarter than that, aren't we? I say, let's spare ourselves and the world yet another pointless and less-than-useful version of Linux."

"I see no such strawman."

Umm...again, it helps if you actually READ the article:

"Pink butterfly themes? Shopping calculators? Does that sound insulting? It should."

"Oh wait, YOU are the one who offered no evidence. ;)"

Well, let's see here, I was commenting on her statement that it could not possibly make sense to have a distro for women. She provided no evidence for that opinion. I don't need to offer evidence, she does. I can think of distros that would have appeal to some women (and primarily women) but that is beside the point. Her argument is a militant version of feminism that is applied in a completely inappropriate fashion in this article. She's arguing against a strawman, not a serious proposal.

As for the rest of your comment, it is rubbish, and I don't have time to waste responding to it.


Return to Linux distro for women? Thanks, but no thanks
