And this is why we have sellers such as
- ZaReason—request just about any Linux distro you want, even if it's not in the drop-down field (my fave—the only OEM I've found selling systems with KDE and Xfce based distros in addition to GNOME ones)
- System76—all Ubuntu
- Dell—they finally have a desktop with Ubuntu 10.04, and there's some 9.04 & 9.10 laptops
The other thing that needs to be accounted for is the options women have that men don't. Women see having a family or having a career as a choice. They can do one, the other, or both.

BS. If a man wants to be a stay at home dad, he absolutely can. Now, some of his friends might give him crap for it, because it's not "manly" to have your wife being the breadwinner, but your comment just reiterates that sexist assumption and perpetuates the problem.

One exception: Gabe Parmer, GWU's new Operating Systems professor, can make confusing things like concurrency (spinlocks, semaphores, etc.) and page caches easy. After spending only one day on concurrency in his class, I got it.

Such teachers are rare.
I'm a CS major, so I didn't even notice that those were CS analogies and just considered them normal ways of describing such things.
And he's not stepping down from Ubuntu or from the Technical Board or from the Community Council. He's just not going to be the CEO of Canonical anymore. He's still up at the top for Ubuntu. It just highlights the distinction between Canonical and Ubuntu.
Though actually, there are Mono bindings for Qt I think. I'm pretty sure we ship them in Kubuntu, or at least have them in Main, but we don't ship anything that uses them.
