BetterTouchTool vs. Magic Prefs: a poll

I just picked up a Magic Mouse and I was wondering what the consensus is on which functionality add-on application is better and why:

BetterTouchTool

or

MagicPrefs


I've included a poll. Isn't that fun?

I prefer BetterTouchTool - its more flexible. However, I have found that if you have too many gestures at one time - there's more likely hood of a couple gestures being activated unexpectedly ( i.e., bugs ).

I use Better Touch Tool but that is because it controls my trackpad too on my MBP. Magic Prefs looks good though too.

I tried Better ....
but didn't like or need all of the complexity. So I use More Magic, to speed up the mouse tracking speed, resultingin a very good simple mouse environment.

I haven't tried bettertouchtool, but I can vouch for Magic Prefs, it works really well.. I've also tried MouseWizard which isn't free and its horrible.. doesn't work very well

BTT works great.

And isn't it free (I don't recall having to pay for it), so just get it and try it out.
