I dunno about you guys (er Girls as well ;-) ) but I don't think this
is off-topic..
Coincidental I met and helped out a very bright and interesting young
woman at our local LUG last night, we installed Ubuntu on her PC
(wiped *ugh* FC3) and chatted about her other experimental Linux PC's
she has at home.

I know I shouldn't stereo type but as a general rule I have not met
many women with the inquiring mind that this young lady had. I think
it's a part of the "Women - Venus/Men - Mars" thing... We're
fundamentally different and toying about with new things especially
computers is something that interests us guys more, not because Women
can't, just because they don't want to.
