The Great Lunduke Journal Computer Nerd Survey of 2023
It's sort of like a census... except just for Computer Nerds. And also not all that much like a census.
It is time for the great Lunduke Journal Computer Nerd Survey of 2023!
The purpose of this survey is to provide a snapshot of the world of computer nerds at this specific point in time -- the results will be utilized in articles published by The Lunduke Journal of Technology.
Think of this like a "Computer Nerd Census".
Topics range form Operating System usage… to political affiliations… to if you have kids or not. Seriously. The questions are all over the map.
There are no wrong answers! Be honest, and feel free to skip any questions you don't feel like answering.
Now, this is important:
All results are 100% anonymous.
All questions are optional (skip any that you don’t like).
The responses will not be sold.
While this survey is using Google Forms, you do not need to be logged into a Google account in order to use it.
All questions are shuffled and presented in a randomized order.
The results of this survey will be analyzed and results will be posted — again, totally anonymous for all participants — here on The Lunduke Journal of Technology.
What operating systems are nerds really running?
Are they allowed to choose their own OS, for their work computers, by their employers?
What desktop Operating Systems bring their users the most joy?
Are there some groups (ages, parents, political leanings, etc.) who are more likely to use certain smartphone systems?
Who is more passionate about Open Source… parents or people without kids?
So many things we can learn!
I published a similar survey several years back — with many thousands of people taking the time to answer the questions. It will be highly interesting to see what has changed in the years since!
You can help by spreading this poll far and wide! The more people that take this poll — from every corner of the Computer Nerd world — the better!
You can point people here to this article, or simply send them directly to the survey here:
And be sure to subscribe to The Lunduke Journal of Technology so you don’t miss out on the results!
That was quite interesting, though definitely US-focused. I look forward to seeing the results.
Will the raw results be made available?
Just next time maybe ask which part of the world I'm from. Note that in Eastern Europe we don't identify as "white" because only ethnicity can signify belonging and cultural background, whatever the shade of one's skin may be.
