Surveying the Debian Edu / Skolelinux users

It is an idea to ask the users of Debian Edu questions in an organized way to get more input on what they are struggling with, and how they are using Debian Edu. This page is created to coordinate the work on creating and conducting such survey.


Random ideas

These are random ideas that need to be structured into questions:

<sep> i'd like to know how large the various installations are. so number of ltsp servers, number of thin clients number of diskless workstations and number of workstations, also number of windows and mac workstations and if they have any other dedicated servers.Then of course if they are pleased or not, and what their top wishlist item would be. 
<h01ger> pere, what sep said, plus woody|sarge|etch. number of pupils, teacher, admins. estimation of their own computer+linux (separated) skill levels (beginner, medium, expert), language skills ("english", not "perl")
<h01ger> pere, and i "fear" a bit the "vocal minority" factor: 20 teachers participate, 10 say they want/need $foo and then we focus on that, while its not really that important. but obviously, now we are running blind. so half-blind will be better..
