I use both, but then again, I have a full license for E11. I do most
of my PDP-11 work on E11(/DOS/Win32DOS) and use SimH as an emulated
CVAX mostly. Again, mostly under Win32DOS.

SimH sucks in the sense that it doesn't do full-spec (exact) CPU and
device emulation, and I dont think it ever will, but then again, it
is more portable, and supports (a lot) more host platforms, so that
is one of its pluses.
