Hi, Since I have been effectively banned from desktop devel (my posts take two weeks to be "moderated"), I am sending this mail personally to people that have been active in the development.
Michael Larabel has offered to host the survey in the Phoronix site, so I have been able to bring back many questions and not limit it to 10. I have incorporated all the suggestions and haven't had received any more in a while, so I think this is ready to go. I say we should launch it before the weekend, probably on Wednesday. Michael, is there anything else I need to do to help you put it on Phoronix? As usual, it's hosted here: https://gist.github.com/gists/1128166 Cheers. GNOME user survey 2011 === 01.
