As a student who's used BB and a geek who's explored Moodle, I would choose
Moodle hands down.  I had many problems with BB being slow and not liking
firefox and in a couple cases gnu/linux in general.  They may be fixed now
(this was a few years ago) but why wouldn't we use Moodle with it's
philosophy?  Hands down argument for me.
