A lot of the suggested questions are hard facts. Some of them will indicate usage to suggest where we might focus, but they mostly won't indicate opinions. This means, for example, that people might say they're using Gentoo for a server but they won't be able to express how well it works. I would like to see a lot more ratings and scales, for example: How well does Gentoo as a whole meet your needs? Perfectly Extremely well Fairly well Not that well Poorly Rate the following, on a 1-10 scale (or a perfect to poor scale) Gentoo's official documentation Unofficial documentation (forums, wiki, etc) Forums Wiki Are you able to find solutions for Gentoo-related issues on Google or other search engines? Always Usually Sometimes Rarely Never Robert Buchholz said we should ask about services usage. I also think we should ask people to rate those services. Other questions, that might address issues like our future goals as a distribution and will probably involve open-ended portions? What do you think of Gentoo's future? "It looks bright" to "I'm installing Ubuntu right now" What is Gentoo best at right now? What should Gentoo be best at? What is Gentoo worst at right now? What should Gentoo stop focusing on? What hurts Gentoo the most? Thanks, Donnie -- email@example.com mailing list
