Whenever I buy a book, I go to amazon and look up the ratings there. I have noticed that it's really hard to find any kind of review or rating for developer components and libraries. There are so many knowledgeable users so I think it would be great to add this feature to stackoverflow. What do you think?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
It might be interesting as a sister project, but library reviews is a fair deviation from a Q&A site, so I can't quite picture it being part of SO proper.
I think it's acceptable to ask questions asking for good and bad features of components or libraries (though others will disagree). Of course, a lot have already been asked.
