    Are you a tester/bug reporter or do you just use it?

    This goes in the lines of the Linux OS as a Home/Office use case.

    Are you just out there to test and help alone the improvement or do you depend on it as your primary mode of computing?

    I've made a poll that is now gone on another web site. Here it is on here.

    Hm, I use it and depend on it, and also file bugs on an as needed basis.

    This is a strange list of options.

    I use it as my primary OS at home, and I also test beta versions and report bugs at the same time.

    I use both Linux and MacOSX as my primary OS's at home.

    You missed the option for "Primary OS and Report Bugs."

    If it's your primary mode of computing, most likely your going to report bugs when you see them.

    Well, it's my "primary mode of computing" on my laptop.

    Aware computing is solely done under Linux nowadays for me.

    While using windows I just use it, when running Linux I try to learn. I probably ought to participate a lot more in the bugreporting and so on.
