Don't you help your mum (which I except to know less about Debian than a
DD would)? Most people do. I don't see any sexism here.

Skype won because it is a very good software that works well. Not
because it has been chosen by default by Linux distributions. If there
was something as good as skype in the free software world, we wouldn't
even have to bother: everyone would know about it and install it if it
wasn't there by default.


P.S: Anyway, if it's technically possible to get Jitsi in by default, I
wouldn't oppose to that if others think it's the correct thing to do.
