I have always wondered what kind of people use the Pocket PC. Specifically, the education level of Pocket PC users. I have some theories, but I would love to hear from fellow users. So here it is: What is your education level?

If you knew me and knew what I did for a living you would not believe that I just have a high school diploma and never went to college.
But it's true.

Well, proutpa - what do you do for a living?
I'm a part-time student (B Computing Science and B Law), part-time expert systems developer and full-time Pocket PC user.

High school and two years on college (law). Work as realtor.
This is an interesting topic. So how about sharing your theories with us so we have something to discuss.

I'm an applications programmer for a large semiconductor manufacturer. Programming Perl/Shell scripting on UNIX to VC++/VB on Windows to DCL Scripting on VMS. Ironically, I have an BS in Electrical Engineering but I decided to get a job related to Computer Science.

I work for a software company that is the leader in Insurance Agency Management Systems.
I go on-site to our Clients to setup Servers and integrate them into their existing LAN or WAN networks.
First I setup an IBM RS6000 Server, configure RAID and install AIX on it - this manages the hardware, then I Install D3 (Pick) on the RS - this functions as the database for our Clients data. I also have to setup RAN boxes, Modems for Support, AIX - Pick switch box, Serial Modem ports, Ether Terminal ports, Etherjet Printer ports, install software releases, etc...
Next I setup a Dell, Compaq or HP Server, configure RAID and install NT 4.0 or Win 2000 Server - this I configure as an IIS Server then install our application on it. This Server publishes ASP pages to the Client desktop so the user works with a nice user-friendly interface rather than an AIX text based one.
The last Server I setup is a Fax Server; on this one I install the Fax board, configure RAID, and install the OS and applications.
Of course I have to setup RAS and pcAnywhere then test for support purposes, install Backup Exec software and run the backups, connect all of these to their existing LAN or WAN and finally install the any necessary software on the Client Pc's and confirm that they can all connect to the Servers and everything functioning properly.
I usually do this in 2 to 3 days including travel (I'm good at multi-tasking).
I couple of times I have setup HP Servers for our Training Centers, these I had to build from parts sent to us from HP. This included the RAM, RAID Controller, SCSI Hard drives and SCSI Dat Drive. Then I had to configure the RAID and install the OS and applications, etc....
I have only 2 years in the computer industry and never went to school for it because I was an Auto Technician for 10 years before this, but I hope to one day get certified. That is if I can find the time.
Oops, I forgot to mention that I'm the best at what I do.
blusparkles I hope this answers your question
P.S. Everything I have said is the truth.
P.P.S I'm going to the Virgin Islands for work in 2 weeks
