Is this the best technology board?
I usually only read this board but from time to time, visit the Apple Core and the Microsoft Tribe. It's just a different world out there. On the Apple board, everything is fine and rosy until you dare to criticize anything from Cupertino. Then, all hell breaks loose. On the Microsoft board, everyone criticizes everything Redmond has done lately and if you say anything positive, then you're a shill.
This board is about in the middle of that, some are bigger fanboys than others, some whine about everything, but overall the discussion tends to be more rational and less emotional. I know it's an over simplification but it's not very far from the truth. It might also be the reason why this board is going to become the most popular one in a couple months' time.
