Tony Pascoal noticed on amiga-news.de
that Be News has a poll that also features the Amiga. The question is The next
Operating System I would like to try out soon will be, and one of the possible answers is ElateOS/Amiga.
As of right now, 23.90% out of 1433 voters thought the Amiga was their number one choice. When I checked 200 voters earlier, we were still at place #4.

|BeNews poll : Comment 17 of 24||ANN.lu|

Leaving a positive impression is important, yes. Most BeOS users behave themselves in other forums, but there's certainly some fanatic lunacy that shows up in BeNews' own comment section that I hope doesn't leak out. BeOS needs to draw in developers, and the new Amiga system will, too; you don't do that by being too fanatic. And, in most people's minds, Amiga has more of an uphill battle; the Amiga is known to most people as a niche computer that hasn't been substantially updated in a decade. The fact that the new Amiga system really doesn't share anything with the old one but the name may not be a liability, but beyond the existing Amiga userbase it won't be a boon, either.
As for "stacking" the BeNews poll, why not? BeNews has a habit of announcing any poll that BeOS is mentioned in and trying to stack it. Turnabout is fair play. :)
