ODBC vs OLE DB Connection?


What are the pros and cons of using an ODBC vs OLE DB connection? I created both of these connections in designer pointing to the same database using MS SQL Server 2005. We are going to be re-pointing all of our Universes to use this new database and are trying to decide which connection to use. We are on XIR2 SP2 and are planning to upgrade to XI 3.1 soon. Are there any known issues or differences with this in XI 3.1?

Any response would be greatly appreciated.
