+Report back from our survey
+Hi all,
+I'm here to report back the results of our survey. First, we're very pleased to
+report that a number of you guys are happilly running PyPy in production! Most
+(97%) of the respondants using PyPy are using it because it's faster, but a
+further 26% (respondants could choose multiple answers) are using it because of
+lower memory usage. Of users who aren't using PyPy, the most common reason was
+C extensions, followed by "Other".
+From reading the extra comments section there are a few things we've learned:
+a) Google docs needs a better UI for this stuff
+b) A huge number of people want NumPy and SciPy, it was easily the most
+   requested C extension. We've already blogged on the topic of `our plans for
+   NumPy`_.
+c) Having packages in the various OS's repositories would be a big help in
+   getting users up and running.
+A huge thanks to everyone who responded! Finally, if you're using PyPy in
+production we'd love to get a testimonial from you, if you're willing to spare
+a few minutes to give us a quote or two please get in contact with us via `our
+mailing list`_.
