Every time I have filled out this survey, I have told them the same 
thing. I believe it was just last year that I told them that I couldn't 
accurately complete the survey, because not only did they not include my 
desktop OS and screen reader, but I don't think my mobile OS and screen 
reader were listed either. That could have been the mid 2015 survey, but 
still, the fact remains that many people have filled out this survey 
inaccurately again and again because there is no proper way to 
accurately complete it.

It has been said that insanity is doing the same thing over and over, 
expecting different results. Frankly, I'm not sure who this industry is, 
nor do I care, since time and time again, these so-called researchers 
have continued to ignore Linux, and only recently have they finally 
decided that Android is suitable for what I'm sure they and others like 
to call "the blind." With this in mind, I refuse to continue doing the 
same thing over and over, expecting different results. I'm done. If I 
keep trying this same survey each time they put out a new one, it will 
do far more to make me go insane than it will do to help anyone.
