The 2011 GNOME User Survey Results

Filed under
Software

Here are the much-anticipated results of the 2011 GNOME User Survey.

As mentioned when announcing the survey, several months ago I was contacted about hosting the 2011 GNOME User Survey after the GNOME Foundation itself wasn't interested in collecting the feedback from their users. The survey ran for October and November on Phoronix, and now I have finally had time to dump the results and look.

In total there was 9807 responses to the 2011 GNOME User Survey.



In getting started, the first question was whether the survey respondent knew what GNOME was... Fortunately, most everyone was familiar with the GNOME desktop.

A software collection is simply a set of RPMs whose contents are isolated from the rest of your system such that they do not modify, overwrite or otherwise conflict with anything in the main Fedora repositories. This allows you install multiple versions of a software stack side-by-side, without them interfering with one another. More can be read about this mechanism on the software collections website. The Eclipse Luna software collection lives in a separate yum repository, which must be configured by clicking on this link to install the release package. Read more
