By preparing my presentation for the computer science class in "IT and society", I got to some interesting fact. The English language on the Internet. In fact, what I wanted to underline was that among other factors who discourage women from entering the computer science field, is the fact most of the common computer languages are written in English. In Linux, if you don't speak English, it is difficult to remember all the commands of the shell.... we often need to guess them, with some small tips from the memory.
