An LWN reader survey

For a short while, there was a "Desktop" section in LWN (maybe 2-3 years ago?). After a shaky start, it settled into a useful and informative page, although I recall its demise was for financial reasons. It would be good to reconsider that as funds permit, especially now that Linux is becoming more prevalent on the corporate desktop.
With respect to "HOWTO" articles aimed at beginners: please don't. The only other useful, non-beginner Linux publication was Linux Journal, but they've dumbed down so much in the past six months that I have cancelled my subscription. There are LOTS of beginner 'HOWTO' articles on the web, just as there are lots of Linux magazines aimed at beginners, but precious few sites have quality yet resist the need to appeal to the lowest common denominator (well, there's one site, and this is it).
Like so many others, this is the only online resource I pay for, and I'm happy to continue to.
