well at least more than automatics anyway.
I feel like you can better control acceleration as there is no sudden change in power, in traffic its smoother. Sometimes I will forget its a CVT and it freaks me out when it holds higher RPMs for a while. I also find it to be the dumbest thing that some manufacturers will insert false shift points, taking away the best characteristic of the transmission.
It would be kinda cool if there was a jet engine style throttle that would control the ratio. It would be like a manual CVT.
