Dear Tully,

Can I also kindly ask for a possible improvement of the new survey? (if 
at the end are you planning to do a new one)

I have a lecture where I teach to the students how to use ROS, but I 
always miss something in the initial presentation: a graph that shows 
why learning ROS is important. I will suggest to maybe include the 
following questions:

- Which Robotic Operating system was you using before ROS?
- Why did you change to ROS? (include several options here and make the 
people choose?)
- How important is knowing ROS for your current work (from 0 to 100%)
- How much do you use ROS in your current work? (from 0 to 100% of your 
working time)

Is that possible?

Thanks in advance!

Eduardo Ferrera

P.s: Feel free to change the questions as much as you like.
