    It depends, what are you doing? Water is easier to use and clean up, but oil has a longer dry time, which could be important if you're doing fine art, and it tends to be more durable, which could be important if you're painting a wall, or a door. Just remember, you can paint oils over water-based paints, but not vice versa.
