10 A lot of the suggested questions are hard facts. Some of them will
11 indicate usage to suggest where we might focus, but they mostly won't
12 indicate opinions. This means, for example, that people might say
13 they're using Gentoo for a server but they won't be able to express how
14 well it works.
16 I would like to see a lot more ratings and scales, for example:
18 How well does Gentoo as a whole meet your needs?
19 Perfectly
20 Extremely well
21 Fairly well
22 Not that well
23 Poorly
25 Rate the following, on a 1-10 scale (or a perfect to poor scale)
27 Gentoo's official documentation
29 Unofficial documentation (forums, wiki, etc)
30 Forums
31 Wiki
33 Are you able to find solutions for Gentoo-related issues on Google
34 or other search engines?
35 Always
36 Usually
37 Sometimes
38 Rarely
39 Never
41 Robert Buchholz said we should ask about services usage. I also think we
42 should ask people to rate those services.
45 Other questions, that might address issues like our future goals as a
46 distribution and will probably involve open-ended portions?
48 What do you think of Gentoo's future?
49 "It looks bright" to "I'm installing Ubuntu right now"
50 What is Gentoo best at right now?
51 What should Gentoo be best at?
52 What is Gentoo worst at right now?
53 What should Gentoo stop focusing on?
54 What hurts Gentoo the most?
57 Thanks,
58 Donnie
