    I'm not sure why this was down voted so many times. If the people that down voted could explain why, it might help others construct better questions in the future. His question seems legit even if the answer is "obvious". Commented Jan 4, 2011 at 6:12

Stack Overflow is a better place for the reduced level of fluff. If fluff is what you came for then, by all means, go to Programmers. We'll all be happier that way.

I wouldn't worry, both sites have different goals (and personally, I still follow both :-)
