"The project OpenOffice.org uses LimeSurvey to realize its polls. The vote for the version 3.0 splash screen, the call for location of the OpenOffice.org Conference and other important surveys have already been done using LimeSurvey.

"Limesurvey allowed us to build a complex community survey using 100% free (as in GPL) software with more functionality than what we found in other non-free online survey software. More than 1000 persons responded to the survey
in the first day without a glitch."

"We needed a one-time solution to do a small internal survey at GNOME. LimeSurvey provided us an easy to use, easy to set up, completely Free Software solution. It took me one night to set it up, design my survey, and use their cute embedded template editor to make the survey blend in the rest of our site."
