Default Motherboard Manufacturer feedback / poll

Because of the ' What happened to Asus?? ' thread I thought it would be neat to see who people think is the best and who is the worst. Please vote and post some feedback. BTW: any other moderators feel free to move this is I put it in the wrong spot. If I missed the company you wanted to vote for, please let me know before you vote so I can add it in. Please only select the one(s) that you have had the best experience with.
I voted Asus and A Open because I have honestly not had problems with them and have own a few A Open boards and several Asus boards.

I had to go with Abit mostly because I never had a bad one and they were one of the first with 3 phase power. Had several over the years and they all still work.

I have owned at least one of the following and multiples of some of them:
Abit
Asus
ECS
PCChips
MSI
ASRock
A-Open
Shuttle
Bio Star
Epox
Gigabyte

The only one that I remember ran poorly in stock form was the Asus A8V.

Ah I also will list mine:
Abit: one that I can remember (the one I currently use)
Asus: 5 or more I think
VIA: One or more
MSI: One or more
Intel: Probably 5 or more range
A-Open: Several ... 5 or more ish I think
Boards in compaq computers: 6 or more
Boards in packard bell systems: 3 or more
Boards is HP comps: 3 or more
Boards in IBM rigs: two or more
Boards in gateway comps: 5 - 10 or more
Unknown boards (just don't remember) 10 - 30
And a lot of this stuff I got used (90% lol) and most was before I ever went to online forums so its kind of how I thought myself to use the computer was by grabbing every free system I could and experimenting. Paid off I guess lol

Gigabyte P35 boards are rock solid, I used to be an ASUS man but recently specc'ed a new machine for a family member. I havent been let down by that Gigabyte board yet. Add to that fact that I currently run a Asus p4p800 SE mobo myself, and found that quite unstable.
