MSBuild vs. NAnt

Tomas Restrepo has posted a nice comparison of MSBuild and NAnt. Although I’ve been using MSBuild for a long time, I’m thinking of giving NAnt a try. MSBuild is missing some useful tasks, especially concerning deployment of web applications and configuring IIS. Community tasks are available, but they are very often lacking properties in order to customize the tasks to my requirements/likings:

My recent efforts of migrating a web application from WebForms to MonoRail might have influenced my decision to have a look at NAnt (Castle is build by an NAnt script).
