RE: [Survey] HP users around the world
Country: Spain
Languages spoken: Spanish, English
A few words of: Italian, German

I am hardly a HP user, rather a HP collector. I used mostly Casio and TI calculators

I think I can sugest a partial explanation for the abundance of Spanish language resources for HP calculators. Since HP48 was launched, every Engineering student in Spain have owned a HP calculator (HP48, HP49, HP50). I suppose the reason is that they are allowed to use them in some exams, and when you go to an exam you want to bring with you the most powerful tool you are allowed.

Why they chose HP48 over TI59, I can not say. But HP hit first and the one who hits first hits twice. HP became a trademark of engineering students in Spain until today.
