Chalkboard or Whiteboard?

Chalkboard or Whiteboard? Which one should be used?

Personally I like chalkboard better. They don't need to be black (can be dark blue, dark green or even a dark magenta), so chalkboard is a more general term.

If you try to Google the terms, here is the result:

Blackboard: 18,200,000 hits
Chalkboard: 3,460,000 hits

It seem that more people are choosing blackboard rather than chalkboard.By the way, according to Wikipedia, the term "blackboard" dates from around 1815 to 1825[1] while the newer and predominantly American term, "chalkboard" dates from 1935 to 1940.
