Participate In The 2011 GNOME User Survey

The 2011 GNOME Survey is being hosted on Phoronix and everyone is invited to participate, regardless of whether GNOME is your primary desktop.

Felipe Contreras and others have been working on a GNOME survey for a while now, but the GNOME developers or the GNOME Foundation weren't interested in endorsing such a survey. But the survey has the blessing of Alan Cox and
Federico Mena-Quintero, so Felipe continued working on this survey to collect feedback for GNOME. (You can see the discussion surrounding the survey on the GNOME mailing list.) Last month he approached me about hosting this now independent GNOME survey on Phoronix, and I agreed. "Many people have contributed to improve it, and I think it would benefit the GNOME community to gather the responses, and try to formulate some conclusions based on it."

The survey should take just a few minutes to complete and the results will hopefully benefit not only GNOME but other Linux desktop stakeholders as well. The survey will be available from now through 17 November.

Here's the link to participate in the 2011 GNOME Survey.

Lastly, the results from the 2011 X.Org / Linux Graphics Survey will be published soon.
