Main or Master: Where Do You Git-llegiances lie?

If you’ve been using github long enough, you’ll recall a time where your primary branch was named master by default. Master was all we knew as the primary.

Then, I don’t exactly recall when, a decision was made to now make the primary branch main. I say decision because although that’s what most people switched to, not everyone was on board…

In a number of instances, these type of changes are thrust upon us and we end up accepting them. Even in cases when we’re not 100% with them.

That got me curious about peoples preferences….

What do you prefer for your primary branch name; main or master? Also, why?
