I do it both for a living and as a hobby, so I can't choose on your poll :(

I just like to tinker, I have much more to learn before I could try to make a living with my computer knowledge.

Well you can say that I am starting as a hobby, I do hope however that I end up doing it as a job. So none of them (poll options) REALLY apply for me right now. Well I am currently enrolled in college to get a degree as a something about (Engineer in Computer Systems) :) So that's a start I guess.

I'm a hobbyist; I haven't made much cash on programming.

I'm a hobbiest, plan on going to college to become a cs major, becoming a professional. Though, hobbiest is the current answer.

I was responsible for other things, 3 Years ago I started to program for company as voluntary service.

I'm doing for my company as my responsibility.

I guess I could classify as a hobbyist. But I'm in a class right now, planning to go to college and be a comp eng major. So, more of a student at the current time, until after college and working.

Right now I am doing it as a student, but do it when I have time to.

As I stated in the 1st version, I think that a majority of the people who do it as a living would do it as a hobby as well.

Professional but like everyone else it's also my hobby. I just tend to code something completely different from work when I'm doing it as a hobby (ie: if the work day was a VBA app, then hobby is C++ w/DX, if work was C++ w/Win32 then hobby is C text game, etc.). Keeps my mind fresh and keeps me from getting completely bored with one or the other.

Professional but I don't really do it as a hobby.

Currently, it's more professional. I also code for school. Every so often, I get time on my own to experiment with new things. I guess it just depends on the time of year really. :D

For me its more on the order of an extended weekend project. I haven't been to serious, yet, mainly due to lack of inspiration/clue as to what I would use things for. Just give me a while, I might make a living off it when I'm on my own.
