Just wanted to know what the general opinion are for the w3shools?
I know there are a few people that is really fighting against it, and some who is referring to w3fools.com.
But seeing that w3fools has said it has been improved, I am now wondering how bad it really is.
Personally, I don't have enough any validated experience to really say if it is good or bad.
I hope this topic won't tun on the flame (too much).

I think the big issue is the name ... its a bit close to W3C, and that's what got a lot of hackles up. IIRC, there was a rush of new bohemian hipster dudes who decided it didnt fit with their ethos, dissed it, and that was the start of it. When it comes to free online resources, ya get what you pay for and in that context it represents at the very least some value for money, but ymmv ...
without exception, there is no rule ...

Some people, when confronted with a problem, think "I know, I'll use regular expressions." Now they have two problems.

Just had a closer look, and can see there are some points that are missing, including a (visible?) lack of any reference to the official sites, like w3c.org, mysql.com and php.net.
I guess they also "win" by having a easier/direct access to all the more popular languages in one place.
Especially with their reference lists.
If there are any another place with same kind of overview, please tell.
