I just took the survey.  I had some trouble with it, but I think I got 
the right items in the right fields.  I then did follow the Contact link 
and write a message urging the inclusion of Linux and Orca in future 
surveys.  (I also noted that I didn't see Voiceover mentioned, either, 
and I know a fair number of blind folks who use it for most if not all 
of what they do on the computer.) Although I have no reason to think 
I've made the relevant points as well as others who've gone ahead of me, 
I hope that mine can at least be one more vote for greater inclusion. 
I'll see if anybody writes back.
