I can't say I can come to that conclusion myself with the data currently
available. This is what I take away from the results:
- CUA mode is used by a small fraction of the respondents
  - both a bias towards emacs-involved developers and survivor bias
    would be at play here
- Keybindings were the most common term in the "Emacs learning
  difficulties" section
- We have no idea how many people were aware of CUA mode and how to
  enable it when they /just started/ Emacs.

I have heard (and found) that TUI emacs can perform better than TRAMP
(at least at the moment) over an SSH connection. Perhaps this has
something to do with it?
With the intake of Vim users, there could also just be a number of
now-Emacsers who are familiar with working in a terminal.

All the best,
