I do Technical Support for two businesses; a small ISP and a large University. On the side I run a Minecraft server, fiddle in various Linux distros, and program (mostly Ruby).

comment Should users be forced into a responsive design (without the ability to opt out)?
I would contest that it is cheaper than a completely separate mobile and desktop site, net better. Forcing a mobile device to parse very complicated CSS to eventually display simple, online approriate content layout is not as good for the user as if the server sent out simple content that the mobile device could render faster. However, I do agree that responsive design does strike a good balance, usually, between cost and UX.

comment Screen sizes, how do we determine standards and what are they?
The grid used by a designer in layout is a tool; I do not think choice of tool is really a UX issue. A better question (and one that has been answered before) might be 'what maximum resolution should I target' or 'Should I limit my layout to a maximum width, or flow to use the full width of the browser'. Those are UX issues. But the limitations a particular tool imposes upon your design (such as a layout grid) is not.

comment wizard pattern on iOS - should I use navigation controller?
If you have screenshots, or could show us a mockup, of your existing workflow it would be very helpful. You can't embed images directly in to your question yet, but if you link to them someone with higher rep can change that into an embedded image.
