I'm with Ingrid. I prefer English...but for completely different reasons.
I have constant pain in my left hand and wrist, so the only thing I can do with that hand is hold the left knitting needle. My right hand will also hurt if I twist my wrist, so I can't "pick out" stitches the Continental way. (I had to quit crochet for the same reason.)
So, I imagine that I'll be an English knitter for life.
