I recently saw a poll on "What front end do you use" and it was very informative on the different options and what people liked/disliked about each. For new users it is very good to have all that discussion in one place.
How about a poll on what cpu architecture you use? Intel Atom, Core Duo, AMD, Semperon, etc.
I have seen several posts on so and so's processors are good for this and not so good for that. Might be interesting results.
