Hello everyone!

It has been a while since I've been in contact with the open source
community. Between finishing my PhD and getting a job, my life has been
very busy. However, I have continued to think about open source communities
while I have been away. For example, like the study I am currently running.

Desktop notifications are a service to help you maintain awareness of
applications and services running in the background. Love them or hate

The current study expands the focus to all Free/Libre/Open Source Software
communities. Tell me about the most recent notification you received and
help me understand what makes a notification good or bad across the board.

For each completed survey, *the project will donate $1 USD* to one of the
following projects (you choose): KDE, Gnome, Free Software Foundation, Free
Software Foundation Europe, and the Apache Foundation.

Spread the word and share with your friends, earning donations to your
favorite FLOSS project along the way!
