Default Bodog or Carbon? Which is better?

Okay, I'm a US player trying to find a new home.
There may be other options and I'd appreciate you mentioning them but right now I'm considering...
Bodog or Carbon. Which do you think is better, and why?

I play both cash games and tourneys but there is no way I'm depositing any money soon, so I'm looking for the best affiliate to download the software from. This means freerolls.

In addition to regularly scheduled freerolls, some affiliates offer exclusive weekly/monthly freerolls or satellite tournament tickets for downloading from their site.

Best so far for Carbon is Cardschat: $100 weekly freeroll.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

this might be the post of the year.

it's like when you see phone-in polls on news programs, where 23% of people have voted "don't know".

Bodog has awful software and one can only three table+they have no rakeback.

Carbon has great software that's a real pleasure to multi-table with=they have rakeback of 35% paid daily ( the contributed method is used for rakeback) traffic is about 8k-9k . The site has been taken over by refugees from stars and tilt, one rarely even sees former regulars there anymore.

Even one tabling the bodog software is terrible.

I wouldn't call Carbon's software good - its like a really bad flash game.
It is a decent speed though I guess - but their crappy lobby is tilty.

Staphros come on they allow one to open up multiple windows and each window can have can have up to 12 tables-they're the best as far as multi-tabling goes.

Merge gaming allows only one rakeback deal on their whole network and there are better deals than carbons 35% out there.

Sometimes the auto alert fails. ALso the screen is a little busy and everything is a little clunky all round except the animations that they love so much.

That being said they are better than other smaller sites.

There are no animations in their mini view that I've already covered and virtually no chat. There software is not "clunky" multi-tabling. The big downside of their software is the way they make one look at hand histories-very annoying when multi-tabling and the only way to see what was shown down.

This June merge gaming stopped offering rakeback. This makes Bodog a better option, as merge vip level can't be trusted, as they switch them at whim and without notice or feedback from their players.
