Default Computer Applications Project For School

Whats up fellow nerds. I'm from Texas and in my Computer Applications class we got a project where we need to go around and ask people who work with computers about their computer usage. I figured what better place to go than a computer forum? Anyways, all help is most appreciated. If anyone could answer the followin questions (i need 10 people) then that would be awesome.

Full Name:
Company You work For:
Position at company:

What computer hardware do you use?


Which software package do you use?


What computer training does the company provide?


What company skills are necessary for a person applying for a job at your company?


What hardware or software has most significantly benefited your company?


What is your preferred operating system?


How much does your equipment cost your company?


Does the internet play a significant role in your company's business?



Once again, all help is greatly appreciated. If you have any questions for me, just leave them in this thread and i will do my best to answer them. When you fill at the form, either leave it here in this thread or e-mail your answers to me at Erichames13@yahoo.com. Thanks a bunch.
