I use both remember and directly editing my main org-mode file.  Things
from remember only go into my Inbox.org, which I manually process into
my Projects.org.

I don't use diary-mode.  I did use it for recurring appointments and
such, but org supports those natively now.

Yes, mostly.  I'm very successful with it at work; not so much at home,
but that is a motivational problem, not an organizational one, and GTD
is not a motivational system.

I'm working on a detailed whitepaper on my org-mode/GTD usage, but it's
not my highest priority right now.
