I need to try to phrase this in a way that's not provocative, but seriously, why. Why does the developer community use Discourse and the user community use Lithium?
Are these two groups of people really so different, and do they always fit neatly in to the one camp or the other?
For example, how come the developer community has a decent editor that supports markdown, proper code formatting, but the user community does not? This editor is a huge backwards step from CQ, and from OSQA, even from the original forums.
Maybe I will get used to it but so far Lithium is a sub-optimal experience for people that are actually trying to contribute answers, and I am speaking for my entire team here.
