I forgot to promote the ONLamp survey in last week’s Linux newsletter, so only a few people saw it. Out of 300 responses, here’s what we’ve learned.
- 52% of the respondents are from Africa
- 39% are DBA’s
- 90% do not have a Linux cluster
- 20% work in the insurance industry
- 0% work in technology
The cluster numbers look accurate, but the rest seem either too high or too low. Oops! Oh, and I’m just informed that only 4% of our readers are from the USA. Hmm.
If you have a few minutes free, it would be a great favor to fill out the survey and let us know what’s on your mind. I’m especially interested in hearing what subjects you’d like us to cover more. I’ll write a followup in a couple of weeks with hopefully more accurate results!
I’ve been to Africa, but I didn’t meet many DBAs. Where are the open source hotspots there?
