I think it's even better when the woman (as in me) in the *nix person and
the guy is just learning.  It is so nice to have Keith deferring to me in a
technical area for a change.  It makes up for all those guys who didn't
respect my technical ability (at least at first) because I am female.

When Keith and I got together he was in marketing and wanted to change
careers.  I helped him get started in IT.  It's a nice reversal from the
norm, at least for me.

Now... if I could only convince him that he wants to make a commitment
after all...
