    I completely agree, when I need a screwdriver I go for Philips nearly every

  3. Well, I only partly agree. If the screw I want to use is philips I tend
    to use such a tool also. However if it's something else I guess a
    cypress would fit as badly and could even hurt the screw.

    If I were to construct something new I would use torx instead. Much better.

  4. Bob Pease recommends carrying a small straight-slot screwdriver if you only
    carry one, since for small screws that tool will work in either variety.

    while this post has been one of the most qualified reasoning so far for
    Phillips, against Cypress, just a friendly amendmend, the srewdriver
    guys use more "lls" in Phillips than the semiconductor ones.
