Dear Lara Thynne,I am not unwilling to answer the questionnaire, but having looked at it, I don't think it is intended for me.
I do not "work on an open source project", although I note that I am on the "Red Hat developer's list". I use open source software (mostly), i.e. Open Office within Windows or Mac OSX; and I belong to one or two open source mailing lists, but that is all.
My main turnoff to using Linux is that there is no driver for my laser printer, and never likely to be. I am not willing to buy a different printer just for this.
Other turn-offs are that I have never got SANE to work properly, and GIMP does not produce satisfactory colours for the art work I do on my inkjet printer. The results are always subtly different from the EPSON/OSX or WINDOWS drivers, and this difference is important.
If I hear from you that I am the sort of person you are looking for, I am willing to consider the questionnaire again.
Yours sincerely, Dr. Malcolm J. Gregson, e-mail: malcolm.gregson@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx web: www.littlewedlockgallery.co.uk On Mar 13, , at 04:02, lmth@xxxxxxxxxxxxx wrote:
Hello My name is Lara Thynne and I am a PhD candidate at Deakin University Australia. I am currently researching the boundary between work and leisure activities directly related to the open source community and open source program development. As part of this I am running a survey at the following address. https://dcarf.deakin.edu.au/surveys/oss/ The survey is completely confidential and looks at your views and motivations to use Open Source software and to participate in the community. It will only take a five to ten minutes to complete and your contact details will not be recorded. You can withdraw your participation at any stage. I sincerely apologize for the spammish nature of this e-mail - I don't mean to abuse this list. I am trying to collect responses from as many open source developers and users as possible and a mailing list like can be the only way to reach many developers. Thanks again Lara P.S The program that I am using is open source, of course (www.phpsurveyor.org)! _______________________________________________ Redhat-devel-list mailing list Redhat-devel-list@xxxxxxxxxx https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/redhat-devel-list
