Kodak vs Fugi

I am curious as to your opinion, both technical and, especially, asthetic about Kodak and Fugi film stocks. I know that DP's tend to have product loyalty. Please, try to avoid a pissing match over which is better. I would really rather love to hear what strengths you find in the given stocks.

Kodak stock is easier to load than Fuji, because the piece of tape used by Kodak to hold the end of the roll is easier to handle. Kodak stock is always cut at a perforation hole what makes loading a lot easier. Fuji stock is cut randomly. The color coding of Kodak cans is a nice feature. I made the experience that the infamous hair in the gate appears more often when Fuji stock is used.
But the only reasons for choosing a stock should be aesthetic ones.
