Does anyone use GM for their Local government mapping? Is it a good replacement for ESRI's ArcMap?

I work a lot with local govt and use esri, mapinfo and qgis. They all have their place and I use GM for most data conversion, data collation, and quick view tasks.
It's been invaluable in scripting things such as splitting thousands of contour datasets to have 5m, 1m, 25cm contours, and symbology or 3D visualization of las data, drainage processing etc.
It's more a replacement for FME than for arcmap due to this.
