If you have a choice between getting paid on a W-2 or a 1099, which would
you choose?

I am starting to do contracting again after over a decade of direct
"captive" employment, and I don't remember what the advantages/drawbacks

Can anyone direct me to a resource, or tell me what you've done in your
contracting careers?
