Ubuntu Users Looking For Linux Chicks

Filed under
Ubuntu

It's always been my impression that, appearances to the contrary, Linux aficionados are no different than the rest of us. So I wasn't surprised when I saw a post on the Ubuntu Women forum, from a guy, who's wondering if there are "any good places online to meet like-minded free software women."

The post, entitled "Ubuntu is for lovers," is from a 24-year-old North Carolina man who's lamenting the fact that it apparently isn't. Why is he putting this up on the Ubuntu Women forum? Let's let the post speak for itself:

"So, the fact that we have 1 active female in an organization dedicated to open source software (and she's a Windoze user...) got me wondering if there were any good places online to meet like-minded free software women.

Ubuntu's shiny 10th birthday Unicorn: An upgrade fantasy

I've been covering Ubuntu for seven of the release’s 10 years and 14.10 is the first time I've had to dig deep into the release notes just to find something new to test. If you needed further proof that Canonical is currently solely focused on bringing its Unity 8 interface to mobile devices, 14.10 is the best evidence yet. Almost nothing Canonical develops has changed in this release - there isn't even a new desktop wallpaper. There are some updates to be sure, but they don’t hail from Canonical. Point release updates for default GNOME apps are included, as is a new kernel, the latest version of Mesa, and some other underlying tools. The lack of updates isn't unexpected, in fact that's been the plan all along. Read more
