What a terrible article..... To summarize it: "Men are the problem".
It goes on and on about not doing this or that, not making sexist
jokes, not taking the keybaord away from a women when helping them but
just explaining the answer.. Jesus.

If anything, the best way to get more women into Linux (or at least
women of the type writing articles like that one) would be to actively
try to exclude them. And suddenly they'll be on the front row of Linux
conferences. :)

Also I think a classy, stylish and well designed comfortable look and
feel (like you-know-what-company-with-a-partly-consumed-
piece-of-fruit-in-its-logo) would go a long way to win women over.
(Again, if that's a goal in itself.)
