    Filled it out.
    Btw, its one of the stupidiest surveys I've seen so far.
    So many questions asked, they should understand psychology 101 - not paid, not affiliated - no patience. 5-7 questions all of multichoice nature would be sufficient. I bet most of the people even with high enthusiasm would loose patience after 50%. Really really overcomplicated.

        Just emailed them about it... I assume it's a typo.

          48%

          Stopped at 48%... to much questions! At 48% you even have to select 'neither' when this is already crystal clear if the other two options are not selected.

            They will have the sweepstakes date updated shortly, thanks for pointing it out.

              Filled out, but ...

              I'm living in Europe, and they asked me to choose amongst US mobile broadband providers :-(

              For one, they should know that people live outsite America.

              I hope this will bring something to phoronix (i'm already a premium member), but after that, this study is stupid, as already stated...

                  The survey seems to be North America specific and the drawing too.

                  Too bad you don't think of us, fellow European phoronix readers. I'm filling out the survey anyway.

                    I know! I'd only complete this if I was guaranteed a $150 gift card. I mean having to select niether? WTF!

                        Thanks! Otherwise I would have have to track down a Tardis...

                          As always people, read the fine print on these things:
                          The sweepstakes is open to any adult 18 years old or older at the time of the entry and a legal resident of the 50 United-States
                          ... and goodbye.

                            I did the survey.

                            It wasn't terribly painful.

                            I'll let you know when I win the $150, and then the $500 on top of it.

                            Gonna use my winnings to buy an Ubuntu-phone. Oh wait...

                              Wow, this survey is stupid.. not only does it not acknowledge Linux & F/OSS at all, but even the phone carrier choices are "Use now / would consider / not aware of" -- no option for "aware of, but would not consider"

                              And, as always: I don't mind helping out the site by turning off adblock, but some ads *COUGHINLINEKONTERAADSCOUGH* are just way too intrusive. Leave some reasonable-color ads around the content -- I don't even mind if there's a bit of animation going on there...
