Sure, you use a different type drywall screw, but its the same after that. You DO use screws for your drywall, don't you Henry?

And steel can be cut/bent/shaped to go around objects with little loss of structural integrity.

Only two things were tougher with steel - attaching the baseboards and the wall moulding for the suspended ceilings. I used screws instead of nails. Nails would have been faster.

I read a thread where some pros use a finish nailer and drive the nials at opposing angles. The opposing angles keep the trim snug. I learned that after I was done :-(

If you are going to hang cabinets, use a c-channel to create a brace. Works great!!
