Survey on Debian usage

 * Enrico's survey on Debian usage - April 2004

This is an exploratory survey on Debian usage.  It is intended to gain
some insights on Debian usage experience.

The goal of this survey is to understand the purposes for which Debian
is being used and the ways in which people use Debian to achieve (or try to
achieve) these purposes.

While this survey is wholly voluntary, the data you give here can be an
essential building block for constructing useful documentation to provide
Debian Developers more insight on how the distribution is being used.

Filling this survey shall take around 30 minutes.  Please try and take the time
to respond.

To fill in the survey, simply reply quoting this message and add your
answers near the "A:" marks.  There's no limit to the length of answers,
so, if you are in doubt, don't hesitate to be verbose.  English answers are
preferred, but you can reply in Spanish, French or Italian if you feel more
comfortable doing so.

All responses will be anonymised before publishing the data.  Replies will be
published without headers and signature, while the original messages will only
be seen and kept by me (Enrico Zini <enrico@debian.org>), and of course the
administrators of some mail servers on the way to here.  You can use encryption
if you prefer: my key ID is 797EBFAB.

Results will be published in my Debian pages (http://people.debian.org/~enrico/),
and announced on the same lists where I posted this survey.

Thank you for your time!
