Research survey: Impact of Microsoft Acquisition of GitHub

Dear Fedora developers, 

I am Natnaree Asavaseri and currently undertaking a research internship at Nara Institute of Science and Technology, Japan. Note that we are not biased to either GitHub or Microsoft, and this is purely from an empirical research perspective. 

As a part of my research in the field of Software Engineering (SE), my professors and I are analyzing the impact of Microsoft's acquisition of GitHub. The main purpose of my survey is understanding how developers perceive the Microsoft's acquisition of GitHub, especially from contributors to Linux distributions and BSD families. If the survey is successful, we will publish our findings at SE academic venues (journals or conference).

So please consider voicing your opinion by allowing us up to 5 minutes to complete my short survey.

We would like to remind you that participation in this survey is completely voluntary and your identity is hidden for anonymity. Thank you for your time in advance. 

Best regards,

I was just reading this. I see no surprises there. But who wrote the
English version? Some of the languages seems a bit.... stilted, and
thus confusing. Do you need help with clarifying language? Phrases
like "we designed a survey to collect much unbiased opinions." seem a
bit odd, and would normally be stated as "we designed a survey to
collect unbiased opinions"
