Why all the fuss about mcgregor 26's

I am a new sailor having never sailed other than in the navy with no sailboat experience. Why all the fuss about Macgregor's? I have researched different designs on the net and it seems to be pretty good for an all around boat. That being said There seems to be an incredible hatred for it among regular sailboat owners. At first it seemed as though it was a dislike but the more comments I read it seems that there is an inherent prejudice against this boat. I am looking for my first boat and have a wife and three kids that I want to sail on the lakes here in Tennessee and to take to the caribbean. Is this a good choice? It seems to have everything I have been looking for plenty of room etc.

Any advice would be appreciated
