NUnit vs DotUnit

Attn C# Developers who have tried out BOTH NUnit and DotUnit on nontrivial projects:  what are the pros and cons of using one versus the other?

I've not used DotUnit, but NUnit seems to be quickly gaining acceptance as the defacto unit testing framework for .NET.

I've heard the DotUnit has direct integration into Visual Studio, but there are VS.NET plugins for NUnit that allow that.

Jamie Cansdale's NUnitAddin (available on SourceForge) is the one I like best. Very lightweight, and has just the right UI. The graphical one that I tried ended up messing up my NUnit.Framework references every time it loaded a project.
