University of Maastricht: Free/Libre and Open Source Software: Survey and Study

[ Thanks to grex for
this link and the introduction. ]

The FLOSS (Free/Libre/Open Source Software) study from the
University of Maastricht has published its final report.

One of its five parts is the developer survey that culled data
from developers in the European Union.

The results of the survey show that Debian is the preferred
distribution, GNOME the preferred desktop, and vi more popular than
Emacs. This survey also handles economic, law-related, and
motivational aspects among developers.

The entire report is a lengthy document, available in PDF and
HTML format. It and the developer’s survey are linked below.
