The Are You A Lotus Domino Developer survey had a nice amount of votes now, so I "closed" it by starting another. As of writing there were over ~750 votes cast, which is enough to make it fair and representative.
There were no real surprises in the results. The only eye-opener for me was that only 2% of you have no connection to Domino. I'd have thought that - by now - my readership would have broken out of the Domino world. Apparently not. Or perhaps it has but the type of people who vote are the old faithful. People from other faiths might visit via Google but are less likely to vote/follow.
So, that means 98% of you have a connection of some kind to Lotus Domino. Despite the fact I have barely talked about Domino for well over a year now my faithful is still comprised of nothing but Domino-heads.
Of the Domino-related readers a third are "yellow to the core" and, I guess, plan to stay that way. So why read here? I guess they want to see what it's like on the other side?
It appears the majority of you have (or had) a connection to Domino but have no idea what the future holds. If that's right then I count myself with the majority. I can't recall which option I voted for - whether it was "fingers in other pies" or "no, but once was" I don't know. I still launch Notes every week or so, so for now there's still some kind of connection.
What have I gained from this exercise? Not sure. I could probably have guessed at the results and got it quite close. It does suggest it's ok to continue as I'm doing and talk about whatever it is I'm doing and finding interesting. It seems the Domino faithful do too.
Hopefully you found the results interesting?
