This site is for more subjective questions than SO is for. SO is mostly about getting help, or a direct answer, for programming questions while this place has more argumentive answers.

  • So its for discussions and subjective questions? In that case a question like 'What is the best way to start on Ruby on rails' should go here or on SO? I ask this because I have seen these questions on SO when it should be here ideally. – bobbyalex Jan 12 '11 at 6:35
  • My cent :- I really don't want to see these questions on stackoverflow. These type of question need their own space. – Zerotoinfinity Jan 12 '11 at 6:46
