The Free/Libre/Open Source Software Survey for 2003

- by Andrew Waterman -
FLOSS-US is an online survey of Open Source/Free Software developers currently being conducted by researchers at Stanford Universityâs Institute for Economic Policy Research (SIEPR), supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation. This survey has been designed to complement the FLOSS survey for 2002 of Open Source/Free Software developer communities sponsored by the European Commission.

FLOSS-US asks questions on some of the topics addressed by the original FLOSS survey, plus questions on several other important issues, including open source developersâ motivations and expectations, usage of licenses and programming tools, individualsâ contributions to projects, and support by proprietary software firms.
