Obviously, Softaculous because it has lot of scripts more than fantastico and it is very easy to use.

We provide both, and we prefer Softaculous, Fantastico started to die since few years ago, the main reason in my opinion is the outdated scripts.

+1 for Softaculous

It is under constant development and updates to scripts.

Another one for Softaculous . Cheaper, constantly updated and has even partnered with some of the commercial software we offer (WHMCS).

We use Softaculous because it is more well known and has a better UI than Fantastico.

What about Installatron? We don't use them but personally I think their UI is much more user friendly / elegant.

Lots of praise for Softaculous here, but I bet the biggest reason for its popularity is its price. That said, it's also what we're using at the time of this writing, although I would be open to exploring something new.

I have fond memories of Fantastico. Is it really that much worse than Softaculous at this point?

Yeah, its strange that anyone continues to use it IMHO. The interface for Fantastico is very plain and stiff. Not only that but it provides about 6 times less scripts than Softaculous. And to top it all off, Fanta is completely lacking any support at the moment so its basically slowly bleeding in the corner, waiting to die

Softaculous is the winner hands down. It continues to offer more and more scripts. The 1000+ PHP classes are not too shabby either.

I prefer Softaculous, at one time Fantastico was ace now not so good, my reasons are I like the GUI of Softaculous, the pricing and amount of updates that they have.

Our users are more into Softaculous, so I'd say Softaculous.
