Anyone can tell you Boost is a mixed bag. It was begun as an incubator for future std libraries, and it's succeeded: most of the new libraries in C++11 were Boost libraries first.

I'm stunned nobody has yet made the cowboy coffee/cowboy neal connection.
Couldn't have said it better myself. assert(Win2K == best && ME == worst);
