Thanks for passing that link along.  The SUS approach might be even
more interesting to apply to a satisfaction survey of the OpenOffice
product itself.

One thing to know:  we do have access to a LimeSurvey instance
(  We used it most-recently to gather
feedback for our AOO 4.0 logo contest.  But it would be easy to use it
for a SUS survey as well.  The advantage with LimeSurvey is it makes
it really easy to manage multiple translations of the survey,
something nice with our international user based.

If we did this survey, what other questions would we want to ask, to
give data to correlate against?   Maybe demographic factors like age,
sex, country.  Maybe operating system used (usability might vary by
OS), certainly what version of OpenOffice is used, how long they have
been using OpenOffice.
