    Survey request and comments

    Please help the Canonical and Ubuntu leadership
    We are trying to gather preferences for the apps that users would like to see in upcoming version of Ubuntu. While we all believe in the power of open source applications we are also very keen that users should get to choose the software they want to use. There are some great apps that aren't yet available to Ubuntu users and Canonical would like to know the priority that users would like to see them. This list is indicative not definitive and we would love to also read your suggestions in the free text box.

    Please take the survey here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/GFVQP62

    They are also requesting that anyone who has comments please do so here.

    Note: there has been some confusion that I would like to clear up--this is not about applications to be included by default, but merely things that we may attempt to make more easily available for Ubuntu users to install for themselves from official repositories.

    I was disappointed there wasn't an option for I don't know what this is or similar.

    I did not put much in although not a program I did put that a script for getting medibuntu and codecs would be a good idea

    I will agree, a "wont use"/"have no use for this" and a "don't want to see" are two different answers.

    The result of the "make" command:
    - Sitting bored in front of a computer
    - Watching abstruse output scrolling upwards too fast to be read
    - And waiting for something to go wrong

    There were a few I wasn't familiar with, though. I googled around a bit for them, but I would have prefered a "not familiar with this program" or "no opinion" box to check, since my views on those programs are merely guesses on how I might feel about them. Yet, the way the survey is worded, these views are weighted the same as the others. It doesn't matter much in one case, of course, but it could lead to eventual biased results. Just a thought though.

    Bit confused as to the point of this survery - maybe canonical will be persuading some companies to write for linux?

    There are two issues for me and others I know:

    The business standard word processor is microsoft word. There are a load of people who would like to switch to ubuntu, if it wasn't for needing 100% compatibility with .doc (not necessarily .docx) files. OOo is an excellent program, and word on wine is not bad, but neither can maintain formatting like running word on windows.

    Secondly, I was a keen user of photoshop. The most useful part of photoshop, for me, was using curves layers. This is something GIMP is working on, but I don't think will be with us for another year or so. So if photoshop were to be available...

    Duncan.
