I enjoy dubstep but the vast majority of what I listen to in the EDM space isn't dubstep. I cut my teeth on trance and house music mostly, although lately I listen to a lot more techno and ambient (and assorted other things)
One of the things I love most about dnb is the diversity in the genre. There's jazzy stuff, there's housey stuff, there's trancy stuff, there's mean and dirty stuff.
D'n'B was my first love from the EDMiverse for this reason.
I like dubstep a lot too, but it's really too bad that most of the Drum 'n' Bass artists that I really loved aren't really making any right now since everyone and their dog is trying to cash in on the dubcraze.

And speaking of cashing in on the dubcraze, even Tiesto played a few dubstep tracks at his show in Calgary this spring. When I heard him play Flashing Lights by Chase and Status I was quite surprised. The crowd seemed a little pissy actually, and I heard a few people complain he was a sellout.
