I think it's a fairly radically different (and much wider) audience, so a bit of apples to oranges.

I am a big fan of Metafilter as covered on previous podcasts, though!

Not to knock MeFi at all, but SO, being a dedicated programming community, should do far better on prgramming questions -- and I'd be seriously concerned if it didn't.
