Subject: [ubuntu-uk] Please help with research ...
Hi there ...  At last night's ubuntu-adverts meeting, I arranged an
experimental survey for research.  I hope some of you can consider
helping with it.

First, find one or more willing volunteers from among friends.
Volunteers  need to be 'Ubuntu Virgins'.  They are computer literate,
but have no  experience at all of any flavour of Linux.

Give them a Maverick 10.10  LiveCD and ask them to run it and
familiarise themselves with Ubuntu.   After a week to ten days, arrange
to interview them and make out a  report.

There are no specific questions; just ask them how things went, and
report back on their findings, what problems they found, and what they
would have liked to do but were unable to find a way of doing it.  Note
their overall impression and whether they would consider moving to
Ubuntu.  Please give reasons for or against.  The interview needs to be
conducted with great sensitivity and a good listening ear.  If all goes
well, you should hardly need to say anything; just listen!

I have placed an etherpad at: http://openetherpad.org/cZDc393hcW for
feedback and comments.  Please consider helping with this.  If you are
in contact with other locos/groups, you might care to forward this to

Kind regards,           Barry.
