Barbie becomes a Debian developer
The blog Liberal Murmurs decided to do its own spin on the Barbie and technology story, and in its story Barbie becomes a Debian developer and creates systemd.
Liberal Murmurs on why it made its own Barbie story:
Some people may have seen recently that the Barbie series has a rather sexist book out about Barbie the Computer Engineer. Fortunately, there’s a way to improve this by making your own version.
Thus, I made a short version about Barbie the Debian Developer and init system packager.
Redditors shared their thoughts on Barbie taking on the systemd controversy:
"Navigating the open source political landscape is hard... let's go to the mall instead!"
"This isn't even satirical, it's more like a fair summary of Debian in 2014. At least Barbie and Skipper are agents of change, not just victims of their own technical ineptitude like the original though. :D"
