Reading device(s) or PC?

What do you think about the results in this survey to O'Reilly customers who bought eBooks?

Do you have differnet opinions about it's results?

I already know the answer to Q.8 is going to be "Avoid DRM" and most preferd format is ePub amoungst you so I guess theres no real reason to answer that one here.

Could these answers be biased towards PC viewing because O'Reilly deal more in technical books rather than novellas?

I do think that it's biased towards the PC because of the content of O'Reilly books.

I'd answer Q8 with DRM-less mobipocket unless it's a heavy graphic book, then I'd prefer PDF.

For the rest, I can find myself in the results...

I have a different answer for #6, quite a lot. I used a PDA and Gen3, and now Gen3 and iPhone. And I don't replace Gen3 with iPhone, they're used at different situations. And I think they're biased to PC too. And I avoid PDF when I can. The same file doesn't look the same at my PC, my PDA, my Gen3 and my iPhone, my answer for #8 would be Mobipocket.
