Last year was the first GNOME User Survey, which was hosted on Phoronix since the GNOME Foundation expressed no interest in having an official user survey or to even be involved with the project. Felipe Contreras along with other independent GNOME contributors and users decided to go ahead with their own survey anyways and had asked it be hosted on Phoronix in order to gain maximum exposure. One year later, the GNOME Foundation still isn't interested in having a user survey so they have now come back to Phoronix for hosting this survey. Without the support of GNOME, Felipe took to Reddit and other platforms for soliciting new survey questions and ideas.
This year's GNOME User Survey is mostly the same as last year but with a few modifications. The 17-question survey will be available through the 5th of December on Phoronix. Results from this year's survey will only be published after its completion in December. If you wish to see the 2011 GNOME User Survey results, last year's data is still available. Felipe Contreras also provided independent analysis of last year's data.
