Nationalities is a bit finer that what I think we want, but similarly I find
continents a bit too coarse.

Not a bad idea! How about a question along these lines:

┌────
│ RadioSelect(:emacs_performance,
│     "How well does Emacs perform in your experience?",
│     ["Very well, it's snappy", "Good but not great",
│         "Alright", "Not well", "Poorly, it's slugish"])
└────

As well as say a question on how many years old the hardware is.

Hmm, perhaps. I’m not sure here.

All the best,
Timothy
