Dear [Sir or Ma’am]. 

I am a graduate student at Hawai’i Pacific University (HPU). I am
conducting an electronic survey for students enrolled in graduate and
undergraduate programs in universities and private colleges in the
United States to discover the factors affecting adoption or rejection of
Open Source Software (OSS). This is my Professional Paper required to
graduate for my Master of Science in Information Systems (MSIS)
program. 

The focus of the survey is to examine the perceptions and experiences of
the OSS Linux in order to find the factors that affect adoption or
rejection of this operating system. The results of this survey will be
used to compile a list of recommendations for potential further research
on the topic. 

Please be assured that this research is strictly for academic purposes
and that the research will not identify any individuals participating
and will not be published or displayed for viewing. Also note that
participation in this study is entirely voluntary. If you would like a
copy of the summary of the research results, please send me an e-mail. 

The point of contact for this survey is the undersigned at
hflaaten at campus.hpu.edu. You may also contact Dr. Kenneth Rossi,
Graduate Professor at Hawai’i Pacific University, at krossi at hpu.edu for
questions regarding my status as a Graduate student. 

Thank you very much for your time and assistance. 

The survey URL is: http://www.shoutmonkey.net/lime/index.php?sid=2
Please pass this on to other possible participants that may be
interested in taking this survey.

If you are not a student, you can still take the survey. Thank you.

Sincerely, Hans Petter Flaaten, MSIS Graduate Student, HPU.
