Default Smith & Wesson Governor vs. Taurus Judge

Does either have an objective advantage over the other, or is it strictly a matter of personal preference?

There are 2 ways in which the Governor undeniably has the edge over the Judge, and this is that it can chamber .45 ACP by using moon clips along with .45 Colt and .410 shotshells, and it has a 6 round cylinder rather than a 5. As for the other differences, here's a good comparison article. The S&W also apparently has a superior fit and finish to the Taurus.

Didn't Taurus recently release the Raging Judge Magnum, which can also chamber .454 Casull? I'd like to see the fool who tries to use that monster of a round in a snubnose version of the RJM; controlling that would be extremely difficult.
