To you girls!.

A little bit fed up about the continuous "Hey Guys", even wonder if women are using your distro. For the rest, good distro, good podcast, but, again, try: "Hey People"...or find something. And don't tell me "You Guys" is generic!.

I know all those, and I went from Ubuntu to Mint which I find better, but what I meant was that, apart from being an annoying recursive " You Guys ", it can make young female newbies fell "not at home".

You guys is so a typical and generic. Also very politically incorrect.

You people rarely fit.

Find my self saying things like Ladies and gents more often.

or the more common guys and gals

Never forget the classic "Y'all" haha . I use this one the most, seems to fit any occasion. :lol:
