1000+ Computer Science Trivia Questions at UNIX.COM

The UNIX and Linux Forums now has over 1000 TRUE / FALSE computer science and computer related trivia question in our database. These questions are of relatively high quality (compared to similar sites on the web) and are fun (according to feedback by users). In the first week during the launch (just completed) of our computer science and computer related trivia feature, more than 10,000 questions were answered, mostly by guests who were not registered members. As of today (a bit over a week after the launch), some site trivia stats:
  • 1,004 computer science related T/F questions are in the database.
  • 10,031 questions have been answered by Guests and 6,495 were answered correctly for an average Guest score of 64.7%%.
  • 710 questions have been answered by Members (san Neo, the developer) and 485 were correct for an average Member score of 68.3%.
  • 11,902 total answers have been submitted including developer testing.

This is the most popular (and long overdue) feature we have added to the site in many years (with the exception of the port to mobile), so.....

Enjoy!

Update:

I changed the category of these trivia questions from "Computer Science Trivia " to "Computer Trivia" since the questions are broader than the field of Computer Science.
