I don't think that many users will know if/when they use most of these
products. Flash, Java etc is something that most will not manually
start, but use within the browser. The fonts are the same, if they are
installed, then they might or might not be used, but how would a user
know? They would have to flip a coin to decide if they "Never use it" or
"Don't know".
If you still decide to go ahead with this survey, then I think that
"Seldom" and "From time to time" is pretty much the same.
