    Ok so heres the question of the day. Are you the a software or a hardware type of person? Do you enjoy dealing with hardware more than software or vise versa?

    I enjoy playing around with hardware more than software. I love digging in a mac and just play with it....How about you?

    Definately software, especially programming and things like that.

    Hmm, I would have to say hardware. Of course, when you buy semi-busted Sonnet Tempo Trios, 100BaseT cards, and a several new HDs for a Beige G3, I suppose you'd have to be :D

    Hardware. It's easier for me to "see" what I'm doing rather than mess with code.

    ooh, tough one... let's see, i do web programming, but i've spent more money on hardware upgrades than i did on the original purchase of my computer.

    i guess when it comes down to it, i'm going to go with software. i can always tinker with code, but with hardware there's only so much you can do. i'm not going to install and uninstall the same hardware upgrades just to play around, you know?

    I'm a software guy at heart--if I can't fix it with a software change/upgrade, I'm highly disappointed. But, I do like fiddling with hardware, too.

    I'm an end user so I guess it's software, but I really do enjoy the fact I can open up a box and actually know what I'm looking at.

    It has taken years to get a real grip on apps like Photoshop and Quark and now with InDesign I get to start all over again, even after 2 years using it I feel I'm just getting beyond the "tip of the iceberg"

    As an end-user as well, definitely the application side of the equation. Having said that, my latest challenge has been to try to figure out what the heck my 7-year old did to my 10.2.8 to render it deceased. I may be forced to reload it all and start again. Lucky for me, he can still play Wreckless Driving and a few others with 9.2.2 until I get time to figure it all out. :) Gotta love them kids...
