      Many people checked this, and comments have been opened for months. If you have comments, you can share them on Some of the mistakes were introduced by Michael Larabel, and I already let him know.

      Regarding the question about how are you taking this survey, it was intended to encourage people to print this survey to multiple people, and then go online and fill the results, or actively push somebody who is not interested in the survey. This way, the self-selection bias and non-response bias can be decreased. I'll make a blog post about that soon.

        15. Which GNOME version(s) are you using?

        _still_ use gnome 2 on some of my computers. pending update to whatever I find useful enough.
        Or windows If I don't.

        16. Where do you run GNOME?

        * Desktop - still didn't update, probably to KDE
        * Laptop - now runs KDE
        * Netbook - KDE not an option, XFCE nether. Probably will have to install windows.

        Technically yes, I fixed one bug in nautilus terminal extension.

        19. Have you ever contacted the GNOME team?

        Sure I did. Its useless in regards of asking them to bring back features.

        * KDE - used KDE3, now use KDE4. Buggy but free

        Compiz, although I don't have time fixing growing pile of bugs in it.
        Its 11.10 version is filled with them, and totally unusable in KDE.

        22. If you could change three things in GNOME, what would they be?

        1. Fire all gnome developers that push feature removal agenda.
        (By firing I mean making sure that couldn't affect gnome at all anymore. Only fix bugs if they want)

        2. See 1 (really, gnome itself is quite good technically, and bug wise. Its their management that ruins everything.

        23. Do you have any comments or suggestions for the GNOME team?

        Yes. Could you stop being ***holes?
