The guys down at Fishburners in Sydney have surveyed how 47 of their startups are feeling about measures announced in the federal budget on Tuesday night and put them into a handy chart.

The only piece of the budget they’re really mad about is the “Netflix tax” which they think could negatively affect their startups.
