Front-opening hood vs. rear-opening hood: Which is better?

I've always thought that the rear-opening hoods looked cooler. Also, a rear-opening hood will not fly up into your line of sight and possibly smash your windshield if there is a latch failure at speed. As far as working on things under the hood, I haven't noticed a significant difference between the two. Please weigh in if you are a mechanic or otherwise have strong opinions/insights on this topic.
