A market research company has issued a report demonstrating male-female IT gender issues across the major countries in Europe.
Inteco surveyed 6,000 households in France, Germany and the UK, and comes up with some startling conclusions.
Apparently, more men than woman will use a PC installed at home but most of the men play games on them, said Inteco.
Women are more likely to use PCs for school or home work, but German women are more likely to do that than British or French females.
According to the report, the ?hard core? games targeted by publishers attract men rather than women.
Said Mike Welch, a spokesperson for Inteco: ?The Internet is only a small percentage which people use. Typically, games publishers target men, although that is changing.?
He added that although Internet usage throughout the big three countries in Europe remains relatively small, males tend to be bigger users but only the highest income households can afford it anyway.
Educational use is rather low, the Inteco report suggested. In the UK, for example, ?middle income households? use PCs less than their counterparts in France and Germany.
