Well, I lump myself into the IT Professional category as Windows and Linux servers are what I do for a living.

However, after spending most of the day trying to figure out how to remotely manage a Hyper V 2008 server from a Vista Client or Windows 7 client which was on a domain....I've started to second guess my skill level. Why in the hell does Microsoft has to make this such a convoluted process? I mean for Pete's sake, VMWare ESXi is like a cake walk compared to this product. Oh well, I've got it working now and documented my steps...so I guess maybe I am an IT Professional afterall.

In my mind an above average user is one who can fix most of his or her own problems on a mass produced machine.

An advanced user are those like the majority of us here. We build our rig and can research and fix most of our problems.

I would def say I'm an advanced user but not an upper-advanced user like many here.

Thus the poll is flawed and needs a semi-pro category.

Yeah Brink is fantastic...

...but also remember that we all excel in certain areas. Everyone knows that he excels in tutorials but I bet that if you asked him he would tell you what he has trouble in: we all do

We all play our part. I specialize in drivers and general OS support (more specialized in certain fields...Installation and Setup, Windows Desktop Experience and Software) while I will be the first to admit that I lack in advanced debug (BSOD debug for instance...which is why I lurk H2SO4's posts...I AM NOT A STALKER!!!) and many other areas.
