Just talked to my wife about that. Hell even the Indians in North Fulton and Gwinnett be stunting. ATL is full of people driving BMWs and Maserati Living in an apartment. Shit is crazy. Fake it 'til you make it should be the ATL's motto.
The IT sector is set in the ATL. Only problem is all the jobs are in ATL proper and north of I20. Search Dice.com and put your search below I-20. You may get 10 hits. They pay very well for the cost of living. Wifey is a programmer for a Fortune 500 company.
Lil brother moving to Houston. I have alot of family that grew up in Houston. The heat and humidity is crazy. The traffic (just like ATL) is horrible. Outside of that you cant complain. Only city in Texas that can legit compare to ATL or any large city in America.
