Sexism exists, just not in the direction you seem to think of.
Maybe the correlation is actually with jobs men are more interested in, which also just happen to be paid better. I know this doesn't fit the genderists narratives, but please just try using Occam's Razor once in a while.
I've encountered things like this a number of additional times with psychology/sociology/behavioral researchers. Their grasp of computer technology is so poor that their studies are extremely flawed because they don't understand the tools they are using.
Yet the same people clamor about hiring practices in STEM fields, and study choices by women, without having any clear understanding how scince or technology work, themselves. Dunning-Kruger at its finest.
Maybe it's every person's own business which career and jobs they want to go for. I know, it's preposterous to assume that blacks, women, and all the other "minorities" can make decisions and their own.
You can look very busy having to deal with all the overhead and boilerplate to get trivial stuff done in Java. Programmers will feel needed and busy, while the superiors can avoid being bombarded by tasks, because everything takes ages.
Another good reason is that non-programmers have very weird metrics for productivity. I remember studies being linked here on
Pixel art is very alive and kicking on PC, with some great recent releases, like Crypt of the Necrodancer, Titan Souls, etc. Maybe there is just the wrong audience on mobile.
One insane "feature" of GOG is that you get game updates for Linux only by downloading the whole installer again, while the other two platforms get incremental patches*. I really hope that GOG Galaxy fixes that, I'm fed up with constantly redownloading Wasteland 2 and Pillars of Eternity.
* yes, I know there are fan-made incremental patches for Linux, but this really should be a core functionality in GOG itself.

They are not even trying to compete with the major torrent trackers/piracy sites anymore. Instead of massively reducing pricing and DRM the media industry is putting up even more hurdles. If I buy a movie, I want to be able to play it on any device I own, at any time I want, and I want the right to make backup. Also I need to be able to downconvert it to lower resolutions to play it on lowlier devices. Nothing that is possible with DRM-infested media, and all of that is possible with pirated movies. They finally need to understand that piracy will stay, and treat it as competion.
When I see the battery lifetime of my old Nokia phone, or recent iPhones, I notice the obvious problem is Android. I am lucky if my Nexus 4 isn't drained empty after 24 hours. Google can achieve "better batteries" (at least for their phones) by developing a new OS.
From my experience and knowledge, browsers on mobile devices don't have ad blocker plugins, and certainly the youtube apps for mobile platforms don't have them. I guess that's the market they're aiming for.
If the telescope is meant to detect brown dwarfs, why is it not called the Spud Webb Space Telescope?
You can notice that all across western societies. People who are actually productive and produce value for companies are paid less and are laid off, while at the mean time management, bureaucrat and "soft skill" jobs are on the rise. In the end you will have half of companies consisting of people discussing amongst themselves but unable to produce a screwdriver.
