Re: Feedback on installer/storage survey for usability tests




Hi Adam

In scanning your email, I came across a discussion about names.  Here in Quebec, the French is termed ancient, in that much of the grammar rules were ones in force in France two centuries ago.

So we have  Guillaume Tell for William Tell,  and Guillaume for Bill, which is of course a nickname for William.

You may wish to look up Robert Guillaume (French pronounciation for both proname and Family name) to Bob William (Americanized) , a famous actor

Oh, boy. Don't open THAT can of worms. :)

Unless you have a really good reason to ask about gender, it is probably
a much better idea just not to do it.
