Hi John 
I noticed that some of the questions use circle check boxes and some use 
square check boxes.  Is there a meaningful pattern? If not, the survey 
should be consistent.  Just pick one check box style.

3.1 Critical Applications
We might consider adding browser plugins and VPN Remote Access to the 

Others application gaps ...
I'm wondering if other enterprises are trying to dynamically manage their 
desktop firewalls.  Firewall management via editing iptables isn't a 
particularly easy end-user solution.  Should we add "Firewall management" 

I'd be interested to hear if survey participants/organizations are 
adopting Eclipse based applications.  That might be too low level however 
to ask in this question.  Maybe that is a developer/IDE question that 
doesn't belong here.

There continues to be debate if we really need an Antivirus solution on 
the Linux desktop.   Is A/V a perceived need or a real need?  It would be 
interesting to get survey data about A/V.

5.2 Application and Device Support
In the second checkbox, "appliations" is misspelled. 

5.3 Change VOIP to VoIP,  Add Bluetooth Headsets

6.1 Add "Accessibility"

Either in 6.1 or 7.1 Add "Ease of Use" or "Usability"
