    Where do you guys and gals work? Such as what is your job and what industry do you work in? I am going to go out on a limb here and assume everyone who answers this survey owns a Mac.

    Reason being I am conducting a survey as to the industry those work in who own a Mac.

    I am a Journalist.

    Grad student in Urban Planning. If ESRI would release ArcGIS for the Mac, I'd never have to use Windows.

    I'm a highschool student. I basically just use a mac because it is a far superior operating system.

    Heh I'd be inclined to agree. I'm a Civil Eng student. Dunno if i'm sticking to this as my "career", but for the near future yes. I'm using ArcGIS 9 right now...it carries some of its own annoying tendencies though...

    Yes, Arc and its quirks. Like not handling file locks properly, closing without warning... it seems like sometimes it just wants to mess with your head.

    Well, after fiddling about with engineering, I decided medicine is the way forward for me. I'm enjoying it much more too. Not that there was anything wrong with engineering, medicine just seems to suit me better.

    I'm in graduate school to gain certification to teach high school English. 2nd (or 3rd or 4th) career.

    Edit: I don't know why I alwasy forget to say I'm also a part-time youth minister...maybe because I've been doing it so long.
