Ubuntu Community Survey Needs Your Help

survey-sqaureGot a spare five three minutes? Of course you do, otherwise you wouldn’t be casting your eyes of my ill-worded prose! 

Rather than spend those precious moments of your life trying to unravel my latest mis-punned pun you could choose to use them answering some questions about the Ubuntu Community.

Why? What’s it about? Over to the survey organiser Nathan Heafner to explain more…

Ubuntu Community Survey

“With Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) being released this month we are knee deep in beta testing, bug tracking, and testing out the new features. Once a year we also have the Ubuntu Community Survey to help us better understand our impact and direction. Generally speaking this survey encompasses questions around contributions to Ubuntu, the drivers for those contributions, and general user data (age, gender).

This year however, a few more community based questions were added, thus the name was changed. You may remember this survey being the Ubuntu Beta Users Survey. Don’t worry, the survey should take less than 3 minutes to complete.

The results will be released to the public for review, and there will be a follow up blog post pointing out the highlights.

Also, this year we are incorporating a social aspect to the survey for next year. If you would like to participate, please leave a comment below with any question you would like to ask in the next survey. Two comments will be picked at random, and these question will be included in the next community survey. Questions that are offensive, demeaning, or destructive will not be considered. Questions in the comments section from other sites that cover the survey will also be included in the pool.

The purpose of this survey is to gather data that will allow us to statistically analyze the growing community of Ubuntu users, specifically those that contribute to the community. With this data we hope to better understand our growing community and refocus resources where they are most needed.”
