As a verb, it is used to describe an action that is a big slay. It can be used in dealing with work or people, in a girl boss way.
(Noun)

"wow, look at how she handled that situation"
"she is a total girlboss!
(verb)
"hey, did you hand in your assignment?"
"yeah, I totally girbossed that"

Yeah my 13 year old granddaughter turned be on to "girlboss" and "slay." So when I go to her softball games and she comes up to bat I yell "you go girlboss !" My wife asked if I embarrassed her . . . she said it did not that people yell all kinds of stuff to the batters - some stuff not so nice - she also said her teammates got a big kick out of it.

Yeah i have heard they yell and act less nice on kids games.. its a game for fun, not a war in that age.. but a lot of parents seem to forget that. :? that goes for all over the world.. only the exceptions is what making that rule too

Hi! I'm Xochitl, originally from Oaxaca, Mexico... but living in the US.
My name means "flower" in Nahuatl language and it's pronounced like "so-chee". If anyone asks, yes, I'm indigenous (zapotec).

I work as a nurse, but I do like tinkering with technology sometimes. I am by no means a programmer or "professional" Linux user. lol
With the way the Big Tech (and the world in general is going, becoming more "woke" and greedy), I decided to switch to using mainly Linux for personal use (still have to use Windows at work, sadly) which includes gaming.
Be nice to me, needles and catheters come in different sizes... and I get to choose! xD

Let me take this opportunity to welcome (or welcome back :) these girlbosses or grrrls)

Thanks to Martienne for getting the ball rolling, and for. Xochitl for the latest post. I must tell you this story when I worked in print production, and I was the person delivering the finished product to this hospital to the children's ward. OMG it was all nurses when I walked in! Half of them were Filipinas while the other half were Cuban. I almost had a medical emergency right there, but I made it out alive somehow.

But I digress. Been a long time user, distro hopper who seems to have settled on LM (I have it installed on one laptop; and I'm about to commit to Vera on the current laptop -- a Dell XPS13) Feel free to post your questions here, and I will do likewise

Hi there, another girl here. I always wanted to break away from Microsoft jail, now finally, dedicated my vacation to switching my old Windows 8 laptop to the free world of Linux Mint. The switching worked pretty well, no major issues. The system freezes up randomly, so I am trying to figure this out now. I guess it is just a matter of learning how to fine tune it.

Say "Hi" if this applies to you!

I am a mixed bag European, currently in London. As of today 13 Nov I am taking my first steps in Linux, with trepidation.
Welcome, Martian.

Glad to be in the forum. Very rusty coder here trying Linux for the first time.
So far, so good. Lots feels really familiar for someone, like me who cut their teeth on Windows 3.1. I like the level of control that you have but feel a bit out of my depth with fiddling around under the hood too much just yet.

By all means take your time! I'm very different from you, I could not code my way out of a wet paper bag if my life depended on it. Yet here I am, happily using Mint. There's room for all of us!

You may not code but you're still pretty darned knowledgeable about Linux Mint!
