The general agreement is that OasisOLC (which is menu based) is easier
to use than Obuild, although Obuild is quicker and appears to be more
powerful.  Also, since Oasis seems to have been abbondoned by it's author
and Obuild is still supported by Samedi, you may encounter a few (bad or
otherwise) bugs with Oasis.  Still, it'd dependant upon how you feel it
should be.  You can install both, although it may be difficult (and you'll
have any bugs from Obuild and from Oasis, then additional ones resulting
from having both :))
