Hi all,

I am carrying out a study on Joomla. I have a short questionnaire, mainly aimed at people or companies that use Joomla for commercial purposes, i.e. as web developers or have used Joomla to make their personal websites where they sell services or goods. The questions are very open ended and please feel free to include as much information as you want and any additional information you think may be helpful is welcome.

Please insert response under each question:

FOSS stands for Free/Open Source Software and PS stands for Proprietary Software

1. How long have you used Joomla!
2. Do you know what licence it is granted under?
3. Can you set it up without any assistance?

6. What are the main features of Joomla?
7. Which of these features do you think are the most important?
