... and this is precisely why I opened this up :D.

Whether a network is "better" for someone in particular involves a
wide range of factors.  For example, I prefer efnet but I'm the only
one in #nginx there.

The major benefits of freenode, as I see them are:
  Everyone already there (115 nicks right now)
  Proximity to other, related projects (this is ##php's problem type of thing)

Freenode certainly has its downsides, and I'm not married to it, but
moving 115 people to another channel on the same network is hard
enough - moving them to another network even harder!
