I mean what wobo has written. Besides, forum posts are more effective
way to track users opinions about distro and applications. I always
hated this survey thing on Mandriva. Also it feels something like a
registration to a propierty application or validate a windows install.
Many users in Mandriva Turkiye community asked me if they *must* fill
survey and register their e-mails. Most of them were new to GNU Linux.

I think we should decide if we will implement a Welcome Center/Kaptan
to distro and if it is an informative screen or basic configuration
tool or both for newbies. I' m not interested in filling the blanks on
a survey. Also a survey would be introduced in main web site. Any
interested user should fill it.
