nodoubt: if there were an option for "well, I'd really like to use this", then the results would be completely skewed and nonsense. Although the article is about RISC OS hardware, not RiscOS hardware
I took objection to Paul's proposal because it was far from clear what results he was trying to get, and exactly what a "serious user" was, or what meaningful any result might be.
By contrast, look at the vote in this article. The question is clear and unambigious, and it's dead easy to vote, meaning that it's likely to get a large number of votes. A broad spectrum of users isn't certain, but perhaps likely given drobe's readership - certainly far more than Archive has. And of course, druck is right to an extent - the people whose opinion matters when it comes to RISC OS usage, are often the most vocal.
As usual, public opinion is hard to measure, even with the most careful of studies - look at the unexpected number of RiScript purchases.
