There are a couple posters that are SSPX or former who are/have converted to Orthodox. I'm very curious as to why. I figure your reasons must be different from the typical NO Catholic.

I'm not a convert from SSPX but I've sometimes pondered whether SSPX is actually nearer to Orthodoxy than mainstream Catholicism. They seem to have reverent attitude towards Tradition and healthy critical attitude towards papacy.

In that aspect, yes. But nonetheless their tradition is the one from between Vatican I and Vatican II, not the one of the apostles and the early Church. They also are extremely scholatic in their whole theology.
