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. I did a Google (NSDQ: GOOG) search and got some software for setting up a dating service and some people talking about using blogs as a dating service, but there's got to be some Match.com wannabe that caters to the tech crowd, right? "
