Submission + - Linux = Male, 93% of Linux users are male

But it is true that most Linux users are males. I'm running a little poll at my website and the results confirmed my general belief that Linux users are almost all males. 93% of all responders were males. While I knew that most Linux users were males, the wide margin was a surprise to me. Any thoughts on why linux is so overwhelmingly a guy thing?"
