Yup, Tom is great.

This is actually only partly what's interesting, but should serve as a good
starting point however.
I think first and foremost, we want to find out what our current market share
is, and we want to know what the perceived strengths (~= our current selling
points) to the user are. The current questions should deal with that, but
surely need to be extended.
We also need to think how this research can be conducted, data collection,
statistical analysis, that sort of stuff. It's quite an undertaking though.

Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the
grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen an angry penguin
charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what
they say if they had. - Linus Torvalds
