Hello, all,

I've created the ecosystem survey.

The response is collected in the following sheets.

These are for reviewing and practicing the survey form, so feel free to add any category/software options and see how the results look like in the sheet. The options in the above form are dummy. I'll prepare another form/sheet copy for the real survey, populate the category list with some initial options based on the Wikipedia, and then submit the survey to users after a week or so.

Could you review the form sentences? I'm not good at natural English expression, and I have no experience in making the survey. I'd appreciate better sentences to encourage many users to respond.

I'll consider software/usage/industrial categories when populating the initial options. Any info source (Wikipedia page) would be helpful for reference of usage/industrial categories.

Again, the advice on where to submit the survey would be much, much appreciated.
