    Default Poll of problems

    Is there a poll of problems encountered by users broken down by problem areas? Say something like "getting LAN software working" or "installing a new video card" or "playing mp4 files".

    Default Re: Poll of problems

    It looks like I didn't ask my question correctly. I am not interested in a list of how-to's or what advice is offered. I am interested in knowing what users have the most problems with. For example, "of 890 users polled, 346 users indicated their biggest problem was playing videos, 206 said they couldn't burn a CD while only 6 had problems connecting to the Internet".

    I am curious to compare other users' experiences with mine and those of friends using Suse.

    I'm not aware of anything like that. Guess you could start a poll yourself.

    do you think folks took time to write a how-to for a problem which NO
    one had had??

    in other words: the how-tos FOLLOW the problems which most folks have..


    > For example, "of 890 users
    > polled, 346 users indicated their biggest problem was playing videos,
    > 206 said they couldn't burn a CD while only 6 had problems connecting to
    > the Internet".


    if that is the poll you want then you have do it yourself....OR, you
    can just do a historical count of the problems asked about in these
    fora and compile the results into sentences like your example..


    > I am curious to compare other users' experiences with mine and those of

    then look at the list of how-to and see if most of you and your
    friends problems are covered....if yes then your experiences are
    similar to all others....if no, then your experience is somewhat unique..

    right?
