This question is currently in the reopen queue. And I'm really not sure how to vote. At the first look it indeed seems very broad, but as correctly pointed out by the OP, in this, very similar, question a concrete and apparently useful answer was possible. What do you think?
According to the definition, a question is too broad if:
could be answered by an entire book, or has many valid answers, it's probably too broad for our format
There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow down the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs.
In the second example, the accepted answer is neither long nor one of many possible. It seems the only way to correctly point out (almost?) all of the key differences between the languages.
