    Anyone else here using GIS software from ESRI, like ArcIMS, ArcXML, ArcSDE, etc?

    Yeah that part sucks too. It's bad enough that we don't even have development licenses. So I can't even "screw around" to learn any of it unless we're working on a client. And of course I can't screw around with it then because we're working on a specific client. ESRI really sucks balls and it sucks because there is nothing you can do about it. I pray everyday that Google would release some software to compete with these fools, hell even Microsoft...

    They have always been a competitor. Check out OpenMap, that is the lib that I currently use for 2D mapping.
