It's quite common in forums in general that you ask a question about X and in effect are told use Y instead. What they overlook is even if Y is better than X they don't know your context. You may have existing code using X that it would be uneconomic and risky to rewrite using Y. Or in fact you may just happen to be maintaining some legacy code that uses X.

Or, Y may just be newer but not necessarily "better" than X and everyone on the team is well-versed in X but not Y.
