Linux distro for women? Thanks, but no thanks

Posted by: Anonymous [ip:] on October 18, 2007 03:16 AM
Well, I've got to chime in. Here's the problem I've got with this article. Men and women are different. Period (no pun intended). Men have penises. Girls have vaginas. Men do not think the same as women. Things that are intuitive to women are not necessarily intuitive to men, and vice versa. I don't have a problem with a "women's version" of linux, as I am not a woman. I don't know if what men (largely) have made makes sense to women, or if they have had to just deal with it. In any case, if a man tried to create something for a woman, it's likely to be tinged with his own perceptions... I say, "why not"? A woman's distro might just work better for women. I like mine, and I don't have a problem with anyone rolling their own.

If the author is happy with her version, so what? But why the need to chime in and abuse women who don't agree with her?
