yep, that's true.  That's almost all our list of OS comparison points
from the wiki (which is what that survey was based on).  These are the
things that are questionable at this point, and we're using the
statistical answers for determining the priorities on these items.

It's our sneaky way of getting you to tell us which OS is best suited
for your wants.  You might select that you think it should be OpenBSD,
but select that wireless card support and high throughput are your two
most critical features (in which case you're contradicting yourself,
but most users won't realize that).  Things like that.

There are enough comments in the ~100 page long thread on the -dev
list.  :)  But of course you're welcome to make comments on this list
or the -dev list.

For those questions, it states "average" if you have more than one. 
Median would be what we're really looking for, but left with "average"
for better understandability I'm sure.
