* That the GUI is only used by 3-4x as many people as the terminal

In fact the results show that almost everyone use the GUI (~7000 on ~7300) and among them some also use the TUI (~2000).

* That the default keybindings are just 2x as popular as the vim-a-like key bindings. This one is really surprising to me, because we seldom get bug reports about things in that corner. But perhaps they just work perfectly?

Amusingly the first comment on Reddit says almost the opposite: "I'm surprised [...] There are almost twice as many default keybinding users are Evil users. I feel like I read about so many people using Evil keybindings that I imagined it would be a lot more." ;-)

* That ~two thirds of people who responded uses magit. I knew it was popular, but that's astounding.

I'm not sure how to interpret this, Magit is a "favorite package" for ~2500 respondents, but ~5000 respondents use it. Does that mean that half of its users do not like it?
