I've looked into this now for quite some time this evening - and found
that OpenSUSE has conducted a similar survey earlier this year.that
can be found at http://old-en.opensuse.org/UX/openSUSE_Survey_2010

Even throwing the exact same survey at our users would be interesting.
 There's obviously some stuff that might not apply, and other stuff
that would be more applicable.
