    83 == Open Source Questions ==
    84 
    85 (on more thought, I don't this this survey should be used to educate about the questions regarding open source software.  i think this would be a place to gather information to see where people are - do they use open source, are they open to open source, are they still dependent on proprietary software, etc., and then use that information to more effectively communicate about the issue in the Lowdown and at the Member meeting.  Just my $.02 - HG)
