Me too. I'm a music history professor and I have a school-provided copy of Finale on my school-provided iMac. I don't use it at all for new engravings, but sometimes use it to tweak an old one. It's 2006 though so it can't read anything newer than that (lack of backwards-compatibility is my single biggest gripe against Finale). I always keep a copy of the latest Finale Reader on my machines so that I can read my students' Finale files, but I don't use Finale anymore for my own engravings. I hardly even use the iMac on my desk now that I'm so comfortable with my Linux laptop. I've gotten two of my students into Lilypond this semester and they're very pleased with it. The rest of them want Finale though.

I guess this thread has gotten rat-holed a bit. :)
