I am a poor Mechanical Engineer, who out of my interest is trying to serve
the Open Source Community. I neither work for a Software Company nor
learned any Software professionally.

When it comes to my work profile, I am a pure Mechanical Engineer who uses
Open Source Software for preparing some documents and making few
calculations. My programming knowledge is limited to few Macro Scripts for
automating things and few scripts in Extcalc.

One  of the means, by which I can contribute to the community is spreading
the word across the world and succeed in making a few change over to Open
Source rather than proprietary or piracy. The other one being translation.

The reason behind my too long (may be wierd) explanation is that I could
not complete your survey. Strictly speaking, I could not understand few
questions as they are beyond my understanding level.
Further, after seeing the full list of questions,  I feel that few of my
answers  are inappropriate  .

I feel that this questionnarie might be a good one for Open Source
Developer but, not so  for a normal Open Source Software *User*

Hence, I request your apology for incompletion of the quiz. I also request
you to delete my replies if they are inappropriate. I also beg your pardon
if my mail is hurting you by any means.
