The question asker has several reasonable options:

  • choose neither (though this can hurt your accept rate)
  • choose the one that posted first (perfectly reasonable and what I usually do)
  • wait for one answerer to outdo the other via edits, or prod for more detail and the one that provides better overall detail gets awarded the accept (better overall for the site, but not always applicable)

Then bite the bullet and choose the first or second option :) In fact, in those cases, it's even less important to the actual answerers whose answer gets accepted because they have rep to spare already. –  Daniel DiPaolo Feb 16 '11 at 19:29

Thank you very much :) –  geek Feb 16 '11 at 19:38
    
@santosh a down vote on meta just means "disagree" with the request, not that the question is poor. Someone must not agree with your suggestion, don't take it personally. –  jzd Feb 16 '11 at 20:10
