What are the attributes of each of these metro areas for which one area is better than the other? Has Charlotte taken a hit in employment from financial services (Wachovia is afloat, but Wamu isn't)? Has Raleigh stayed fairly steady because of the government, colleges, tech and medical? Just curious. I moved to Atlanta from the West Coast right after college and liked it. It feels a little crowded now...that metro area now counts 5 million people. There are some cities where the inflow appears to continue unabated, even when we're in a recession...the Southeastern cities, Houston, Phoenix, etc.

Please comment on the differences between these two metro areas that most people living there, or who are knowledgeable, would take note of.
