OOpic vs Basic Stamp

Hi, I'm new here and don't do the microcontroller thing too often but am driven by task to get back into it :}

I worked with the Stamp some years ago on a "real time" servo controller. Now I need to build a small process control system. I was ready to dust off my old Basic Stamp notes and buy some toys when I found the OOpic. It does have a couple pluses over the Stamp, mostly the virtual-circuits multitasking feature. But besides that I'm still very biased toward the Stamp. There's more ready made parts/boards/gadgets for it, I already own some of the gear and I'm familiar with the Stamp. And I hate judging from appearences, but the OOpic site is not too great (is the English in the manuals like that of the site?)

I already know what all you awesome assembly gurus will say to all this Basic stuff :} But does anyone have OOpic vs Stamp experience? Hopefully this doesn't start a big micro-war, I just want to know if the "multitasking" is worth switching over for. Thanks for any help!
