In following the discussion and the ongoing suggestions to add more
questions, I'm beginning to wonder if there might be another way to
approach this.

What if we were to release a poll every month or so, that is, get people
in the habit of answering no more than say seven questions and reporting
back two weeks later with the results?

Rinse and repeat with different questions.

Ultimately I think we're trying to build a picture of our audience that
helps the evolution of Ubuntu-server. Making a poll every month would in
total allow us to generate 42 different questions between releases. We
could start off with getting an idea of what needs the most attention,
then evolving questions to address the needs. We can even use the poll
to ask what question to ask next month.

The image I have is that we are building a customer base that is engaged
in the process of evolving the product they use, that is, making it
better for what they need.
