i bet you never tried to manage bans in Undernet using X, did you? :) its a 
nightmare compared to eggdrop.  i dont know about other services on other 
networks.  but also, as has been mentioned by others, eggdrop is MUCH more 
stable than services.  not only is any eggdrop itself alone usually more 
stable than services (if it's on a decent shell) but most channels of any 
size have several bots which share the same information, thus you have 
redundancy that services can't touch.

not only that, you know of any services that you can upload scripts to? :)  
start, stop, change servers, reconfigure, etc at will?
