I suspect it's closer to 10/10/80% split. Or maybe 5/5/90%. These discussions only bring in the people who are actually interested in the subject.

This topic shows up every few months, and the results are always the same: some people adamantly prefer one, about an equal number adamantly prefer the other, and the majority shrug and say "whatever." I think it's good to keep checking; if ebook technology changes, we may see a noticeable shift in preferences. But for now, what I get from the surveys is "just go with whatever you like; it's not going to make a noticeable difference in public reaction or sales."
