Basic Stamp vs Arduino

Lots of reviews with similar names to this one say, "here's the info... you decide." Well I'm not going to do that... I'm going to name a winner, so don't touch that dial!

Basic Stamp:
Price: $119
Open Source: No
Awesome: eh...

Price: $32
Open Source: yes
Awesome: yes

Well I think that about sums it up ;)

PS - I don't really have anything against the Basic stamp... It was my first microcontroller. it's just that, well...
