PostPosted: Mon Oct 31, 2005 9:00 am    Post subject: Migration To Linux: Questionnaire. Reply with quote

Hi everyone,

I am Ajith Kumar from New Zealand. As a component of my Master of Computing thesis, I am undertaking a study to identify the factors that comprise the rationale for the migration from Microsoft operating systems to Linux, in business organisations. The study will investigate the various issues associated with the migration from Microsoft operating systems to Linux.

If you or someone whom you know will be interested in filling up a questionnaire I would really appreciate it. The questionnaire can be accessed by clicking on the link: http://www.bcs.net.nz/~ajithk/MComp.htm It shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes.

Thank you in advance for your support, appreciate it.

Regards,

Ajith Kumar.

I wish I could offer one. But then the ethics people would hold me responsible for bribery.

Cheers,

Ajith.

TRANSLATION for us non business ppl:
As a part of my Master of Computing thesis, I am looking at why business organistations switch from Microsoft windows to linux. The study will also look at some of the issues encountered when migrating to linux.

I won't tell anyone if you slip me one.. although I would strongly prefer an iAudio X5 as it supports Ogg Vorbis and FLAC.

Just a comment on your quiz. The dates offered are

Before 2000
2001
2002
...

You may want to change the before 2000 to something which includes 2000 since I believe that is what the intent is

I was really interested in filling up your questionnarie but then, once I saw, I couldnt manage to close it :(
Would make it sometime, if i feel bored...
I also wish, you could post this to the microsoft and other technology forums, so that you get a broader perspective of user views
I know, most people in this forum have had previous linux migration knowledge but it sometimes lead your report to be biased.

Good Luck!!!

BTW, once you finished try posting your final report.

Hi Alistair,

I'm from Tauranga in NZ and doing my Masters at UNITEC. Good to know that you are from NZ as well.

Cheers,

Ajith.
