Yes, win+x is very handy. But that only gets you the quick access to the windows administrative function. Say you want to see the applications you have installed. Have you actually looked at the menus? They're terrible. I have 5 different versions of Visual Studio installed along with all the tools that accompany them. Unless I pin a shortcut to start, I can't actually tell the which version of VS I'm clicking on. There's no submenus, and the display names are far too short. You have Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, Microsoft Visual Studio 2008, Microsoft Visual Studio 2010, Microsoft Visual Studio 2012.... they all look like like this: "Microsoft Visual Studio 20..." Nice eh. It's a clusterfuck of a menu.

It's obvious even in that little social microcosm of society we call high school. The beta males cliques gather in the library or the computer lab or wherever to do their nerdy things...maybe play Magic, or D&D, or whatever. At best there's what? Maybe there's one or two equally beta females hanging out with that group (if any). And it's certainly not because they're conspiring to exclude girls. In fact, they'd be happy if there were more among them. I know this because I was one of those kids and so were a lot of us here.

Who knows if there's something genetic but there's obviously something cultural. Most women don't strive to immerse themselves in a culture that is predominated by socially awkward beta males. I don't understand why nobody accepts this obvious explanation for the lack of women.

Real Programmers don't write in FORTRAN. FORTRAN is for pipe stress freaks and crystallography weenies. FORTRAN is for wimp engineers who wear white socks.
