Hello! I just posted to introduce myself in the general 'introductions' forum ... but I'll post here too, to represent. It is nice to get a sense of how many women are already involved here. Not only are typical roles for women still in the process of changing, we're some of the ones changing them :)

Beyond getting more into such things myself, I'm thinking of making learning to deeply understand and modify an operating system (like Linux Mint) a project for girls in an afterschool program I work with sometimes. Right now, they are mostly a service organisation with a FEW learning projects each year, so it may be a stretch, but if I ever get an actual set of resources or 'curriculum' together for that, I'll be sure to report back here.

For other vague biographical information, in addition to being female, I am in the US, mid 20s, speak English and Spanish, and am very much about collaborative projects. About sums it all up, right?

Hello lacewing! It's so good to have you on board. Your idea for an afterschool project sounds awesome!

If your issue is solved, kindly indicate that by editing the first post in the topic, and adding [SOLVED] to the title. Thanks!

Welcome, and I fully agree. It's about time. There are some of us who, when looking at a person, see a person, not a gender :)

It's good to have you aboard, and I hope you can start contributing to the community.

Hola from Spain!
I've been toying with the idea of getting Linux for my laptop for a while since the thing is getting slower by the minute. I've just downloaded the Cinnamon flavor and I'm currently backing up the massive amount of stuff stored in my hard drive. I've already installed the XCFE version in a *really* old notebook and it works just fine, so I'm really eager to try Cinnamon. I hope I'm not too clumsy :oops:
