Need some info about your Linux preferences

37 posts in this topic

Heya folks,

I need to do a small empirical research project for my research module at University on any topic of my choosing and I thought why not do something that's not to boring. Anyhow the research is going to be about people who use Linux and their age groups. All the data would be anonymous of course so don't worry about your names/tags/whatever being used.

Anyhow, all I need to know is:

[b]-Which distro's do you use most often (often being at least once a week)
-Your age[/b]

If you don't feel like posting your age here feel free to PM me ^_^ I hope it's cool asking this here. I figured this would be a good place to ask since I've read many people using many different types of distributions here and I might as around University as well but I know for a fact none of my peers (those who i've asked) at University use Linux apart from the Mac OS which is kinda Linuxy but not really ;)

To get the ball rolling I intend to use myself as data since I'm 22 and use Ubuntu and Knoppix.

Thanks in advance for any help, it's much appreciated!

I'm running Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, and Slackware on my machines currently.

I don't share my age, so you'll have to assume I'm about 25.

Ubuntu & OpenBSD -- very odd mix. Obviously one isn't Linux, but I use it a lot.
I used to use Slackware a lot more years back, it's one of my favorites.

Ubuntu - 19

Every little helps, I'm surprised at how young the population of BinRev is.

(*NOTE* I'm a systems administrator so I work on all of this stuff for a living. If your study is just on Linux users then Debian, Gentoo, and OpenBSD are all I use outside of the office.)
