Default Better Bottle vs Glass Carboy

Does anybody have any advice on which one they prefer?

I have a glass carboy but if their aren't disadvantages to the better bottle I would rather go with the plastic as it is harder to break. Does the plastic pick up any flavors? Do better bottles last as long as glass carboys?

*Hint hint* There's about a million threads on this topic...quite a few right down in the similar thread box below.

And more can be found with search.

But the main answer is....they both make beer, so anything else is just a matte of choice.
