Thanks to everyone for participating.

We do see some interesting trends over the past 7 years, with different technologies growing or shrinking. (DSL vs Dialup Modems, Websites, Floppy Drives vs Flash Drives, POS vs NO POS, VIZ vs NO VIZ, CMC vs NO CMC, etc)

Remember: The results represent a relatively small sampling of framers/participants, and should be used with caution. Framing forum users tend to be technically inclined people. As a result, the results should not be used as a primary planning tool. This yearly survey is done to see how forum participants use technology in the frame shop. The hope is that it will encourage discussion of important technology topics on the participating forums.
