  Was it really necessary to start your mail with negativity?

  Assuming user is given the choice at first login if he/she wants to
participate, it is indeed a good idea. Would you be providing patches
for this?

  Those sites will surely get us plenty of geeks but as I said to you
in person when I asked you to make this survey happen, there must be
at least 10% participation from people who can't be put in the 'geek'
category: ordinary people in non-technical professions. One way to
check that would be to ask a few simple questions like:

* How often do you use terminal/console?
* How do you rate your computer skills from 1-10.
* etc

  Also, most people are still on facebook so better advertise this on
facebook gnome3 page too.

  Other than that, the questionare you came-up looks good. :)
