Results of the Ubuntu Census Survey

Filed under
Ubuntu

The Ubuntu Census Survey ran during the period from 16th of May to the 8th of June 2006, whereupon it was frozen for analysis.

The questionnaire
The Ubuntu Census Survey was based on a questionnaire consisting of 5 sections and a total of 65 questions. The 5 sections sought to get basic statistical data on the Ubuntu community members' personal profile, computer use and habits, previous F/OSS involvement, Ubuntu involvement and which channels of communication they use within the community.
The text of questionnaire can be found here.
Note that this is the text of the second version where a few unlucky phrasings had been changed and a few extra options have been added to some of the multiple response questions.

Analysis of the data
The survey attracted more than 330 responses of which around 290 were complete and valid. These responses were then processed and analyzed for presentation at the Ubuntu Developer's Summit where it unfortunately couldn't fit on the agenda. The prepared slides are instead available here:

  • Unreal Engine 4.16 Enters Public Preview State
    Epic Games on Friday released the first public preview of the upcoming Unreal Engine 4.16. There are many changes to find with Unreal Engine 4.16 while some of the highlights include volumetric fog support, a new clothing solver, optimized distance field lighting, garbage collection improvements, and more.
  • Unreal Engine 4.16 Preview
    A Preview of the upcoming 4.16 release is available now on the Launcher and Github. We have made this Preview available so that our developer-community can help us catch issues before the final release. As fixes are implemented, we will release updated previews throughout the development cycle. Please be aware that the preview releases are not fully quality tested, that they are still under heavy active development, and that they should be considered as unstable until the final release. Developers should not convert their projects for active development on preview releases. Please test on copies of your project instead.
  • Watch this highlight reel of iAlwaysSin's Alien Isolation livestreams!
    Last Thursday the newest member of the GOL Livestream Team, iAlwaysSin, completed her live playthrough of the extremely scary Alien Isolation. And, to commemorate this achievement (and all the deaths that occurred in the process) I decided to download and edit all the VODs together into a nice highlight reel. With my sarcastic remarks, of course.

Manjaro Linux: Reliable and Up to Date, Geekdom Optional

Regular readers can pretty much ignore this one. We’ll be back to cartoons, O’s baseball and the usual inanity soon, tomorrow in fact. I just wanted to revisit my dedication to Linux, prompted by a recent mixed bag of experiences that left me feeling even more positive about a relative newcomer to the distro scene: Manjaro. It all started a few days ago, when I decided to finally try to update the eight remaining Linux installs on my main desktop PC. I’ve been using Linux Mint (18.1 Cinnamon) as my daily driver for several months, originally in an attempt to keep my bandwidth usage to a reasonable level, and then due to inertia/lack of issues. I could have gone with my trusty Debian stable install, my go-to for years up till then, but I guess I was just getting bored. Read more
