About the users that will answer the survey, I would like to share
something. There are many schools in Brazil that use GNOME. I've been to
4 schools in April, only in one of them there was at least one person
that knew what distribution they were using, on the others they only
knew it was "Linux" and they didn't understand what was a Desktop
environment. Three out of the 4 schools used GNOME, if I remember

I don't think there is a way to make those users know about the survey
unless someone goes there in person. They also won't start using GNOME 3
in the near future, because they are using old versions of everything or
using a default Ubuntu installation (1 school).

So even if we reach 1 million answers, we should keep in mind there is
at least one type of user that won't be accounted for.
