Granted I'm not a mod...but can we not turn this into some kind of battle?
HH and WB are both out there now. For any number of us newcomers...the history of both companies and the development of various features by either are kinda out of scope for our interests/needs.
From my perspective...both appear to be darned good. I happened to go with HH for my choice, and have no reason to regret it. I suspect I'd have been equally as happy had I gone WB as well.
There are advantages and/or disadvantages to either.
