Ubuntu 6.06 Released Birthday In Review

Interesting Webpolls

June 2nd, 2006 at 02:14pm

Over the last couple of days I’ve spotted a couple interesting webpolls, unfortunately one of them has already closed, but they are still both worth a look anyway.

One is on the John Laws website posing the question “Would you like to see a halt to the Snowy Hydro sell off?”. This one has closed but the results were fairly conclusive with 84% saying yes and 16% saying no. I’m not at the computer that I registered my “yes” vote at, so I can’t find out how many votes there were.

Slashdot also have an interesting poll running at the moment, the question is “I will obtain Windows Vista…”, the results as they stand at the time of writing this:

When I Specifically Buy It
5243 votes / 9%

As Part of a Computer Purchase
8626 votes / 16%

17304 votes / 32%

17785 votes / 33%

CowboyNeal Has My Copy
4860 votes / 9%

Total votes: 53818

Incidentally my vote is “Never!”

    Happy birthday Samuel,

    It’s good to see that you’re having such a great day.
    I’m having a shandy to celebrate your nineteenth year.

    Webpolls are fun!
    Can we expect to see a few polls here at SGS?

    Wish Nattie a happy birthday too!!

    Oddly enough I was thinking the same thing about having webpolls here…don’t be surprised if it happens soon.

    I’d like to see polls conducted here Samuel as you have a pretty diverse following. I suspect the result could be a microcosm of the whole of Australia.

    May I suggest a poll?

    Would people appreciate the inclusion of music such as that of Chuck’s on your Persiflages?

    I would be very interested in the consensus of opinion.
