A few other questions that could be added:

1) What formats the user has their music in (format/bit rates).
2) Which slim mailing lists are subscribed to?
3) Are they active in development (of plugins, and or patches to main server).
4) To make the survey more lasting it might be better instead of
asking which server version, ask if they install latest stable, or
track CVS head etc
