This is a short community survey on the potential for resurrecting the "Getting Things GNOME" (a.k.a. "GTG") project. GTG is a native GNOME desktop application (it also runs well on other desktops) that is entirely free and open-source (licensed under the GPL) and runs locally on your Linux computer. It is one of the most well-made productivity apps of the decade.
If you arrived directly on this survey, take a minute to learn more about the context in this blog post. If you need further context and don't know what GTD is, see this companion video I made to summarize the methodology.
Filling this survey should take 4-6 minutes at most.
- Your answers to this survey will be incredibly helpful in letting me (Jeff Fortin Tam, long-time FLOSS contributor) evaluate if/how GTG can be brought back to life as a sustainable project.
- Please answer honestly (for example if you know you wouldn't want to pay a dime, don't pretend you would! I don't need encouragement, I need realistic data)
- The survey is anonymous, except if you willingly share your email address so that I can reach out later and let you know the outcome (or if you want to get in touch to be a developer). In any case, I'm not selling the information, and what I would share publicly would be aggregate statistics and conclusions derived from them. The survey system you're using is running LimeSurvey, which is open-source software, and after analyzing the data I will probably destroy it to ensure safety as an extra precaution.
When you're done, please share this survey with people around you—in online and offline communities, among friends and coworkers, etc.
There are 17 questions in this survey.
