Default Hell via RED BOARDS

Here comes the noob begging to be let in on the big joke

Why are people using red pc boards poked fun at?

lol. I dunno. I have seen in my readings on the site about 5 posts of people saying things like "Shame on those darn red things" etc. It just seemed like a theme to me, though I may be mistaken.

It's a metaphore for normal life. The mob always attacks those things that are different. When in point of fact it is the diversity of differences that make us strong...

(I wouldn't let my sister date anyone who used RED PCBs! Of course she's 70 and still married...)

It must be referring to the often red pcbs sold online that are copies (IP theft) of famous circuits (often Pass Labs).

IP theft aside, IMO, if your going to pay a boardhouse more, most charge a bit extra for a different color than the standard green, I would do black w/white silk, or gold plated copper and clear solder mask w/red silk.

In the commercial world, some companies use various colors of solder mask to identify prototype/pre-production/developmental PCB assemblies, but the specific details are entirely set by internal "house rules" and not standardized in any sense.

Red or pink is for girls ! lol

If I remember correctly green is the cheapest and other colours can cost more.
