please add additional options, if possible:
No - Had GPUs, will keep mining
No - Had FPGAs, will keep mining
No - Had mix of both, will keep mining
Yes - new to bitcoin and going ASIC

I know these will likely have few responses but I am interested in if anyone is considering those options.
You could condense the first 3 into "I will mine with what I have now (before ASICS) for a long time!"

I know that once I move to ASIC, I will keep GPU mining in the winter to avoid using my oil heater. Even in the summer, I will likely keep my 5830 single unit mining.

Added.

getting out

i see interest in bitcoin as a whole falling drastically w/ introduction of specialized equipment for 'mining'

@ current price, i'll keep the GPUs running until 4m diff

oh, seeing as how jeff got his ASIC, I imagine that korean node that's been reporting blocks probably has one too

Dacentec Dedicated Servers (Lenoir, NC, USA) from $25/mo & Time4VPS Storage VPS' (Vilnius, Lithuania) from €18/qtr & Hetzner's serverbidding, from ~€20/mo -- had bitcoin nodes & p2pool (dacentec, hetzner) for several years on these.  Only two are affiliate links too, kek! -------  Feel free to join my G2A Goldmine Pyramid Scheme Team, or possibly even buy a Steam game from there.  Maybe.
