Default Gigabit ethernet usage at home

Gigabit ethernet has been around for a long time now, yet I still see a lot of retail stuff at the "fast" 100 Mbps level. A couple of recent threads on this forum have mentioned gigabit ethernet in passing.

I am just curious about the adoption rate of gigabit ethernet in "home networks". For those of you who may be using ethernet as part of a home network, do you use gigabit ethernet (or faster) and if so to what extent? If not, why not?

Thanks to any forum members who may wish to respond.

In my case, no, I'm not using it. I only have one ethernet adapter (an sk(4) built into a motherboard) that supports it, and don't feel it's anywhere close to worth spending money on more supporting hardware, for my usage.
