I left this pool running for 2 months as I was really interested to see more results from the peoples browsing the site. Here are the final results:
Who is managing your Linux server/s?
Me, of course! -> 79% (139 Votes)
No one… Do I need someone to manage my server? -> 6% (11 Votes)
My sysadmin (full time employed) -> 6% (10 Votes)
My hosting company takes care of this -> 4% (7 Votes)
My programmer/s take care of the server when they have time -> 3% (5 Votes)
Outsourced using a freelancer -> 2% (4 Votes)
Outsourced using a company -> 1% (1 Votes)
Total Votes : 177
Conclusion? Well it is clear that most of the peoples that use this site are managing themselves their Linux systems. This is very cool, and what I was hoping. As you probably know, myself I am working as a freelancer and the small number of votes shown from peoples outsourcing their sysadmin works doesn’t mean that there are not many doing this, just that they have not a reason to use this site.
Please feel free to comment on the results of this poll using the comment form of this post.
