Open Source Survey - Request for participation

P: n/a
Hi everyone,

Sorry to fill up this newsgroup with this request, but for coursework at
Erasmus University (the Netherlands) I need to conduct a survey
regarding the use of certain open source projects and I'm therefore
looking for some volunteers to participate in this survey. The survey is
located at: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.asp?u=42670815560 or
alternatively at http://tinyurl.com/3stvu. I'm aware of the (self)
selection bias involved with websurveys and the resultant questions of
survey validity, but as use of open source software is difficult to
estimate otherwise this method of data collection can in my opinion be
justified.
As an incentive for participation one $20 Amazon gift certificate and 10
Gmail invites will be given away to lucky participants who honestly
answered all questions and submitted their e-mail addresses. The e-mail
addresses will ONLY be used for this purpose and will be discarded after
the give-away has been concluded. After the survey has ended, results
will be e-mailed to participants who indicated an interest in these
results and the results will be released to further (academic) research
regarding open source software.
One last note: I know the survey is asp and runs on Microsoft-IIS/6.0,
but this choice is not based on a preference for asp/IIS, but rather on
constraints on time and (most importantly) money. The survey works under
Gentoo, Mandrake, FreeBSD with Mozilla, Firefox and Konqueror and will
probably work under other operating system flavours (although some have
experienced problems related to javascript). Cookies need to be enabled,
my apologies for any inconvencies as the result of this.
Thanks for the time,

Kenzo Fong
