I like most of Mailman -- but it's written in Python, and that means
that using it requires installing (and, ultimately), learning yet
another programming language. Sympa is in perl, which most sites will
have installed, so that's one less detail to worry about, and I know
perl, so I can at least dink with it if I need to, and I didn't think
mailman brought enough extra to the trough to warrant the extra work
needed to use it.
That's not a criticism of mailman, but stuff to keep in mind while
evaluating it. Your mileage may vary, especially if you know python
and like using it.

I live for it, but learning another language? (sigh....)
