Smooth or Serrated Trigger

Just curious as to whether a majority of 1911 shooters prefer smooth face or serrated triggers?

I'm sitting here and can't even remember which of my 1911s has a smooth vs. serrated trigger. I guess that means it doesn't make a lot of difference to me!

I could go with either, but I guess if I had to pick one, I'd go with serrated.

I don't care for a serrated trigger on a hand gun.
Don't mind them on a rifle though.

I can't remember the last time I ever came across a production gun with a smooth trigger, though there are a few makers I have no interest in and probably wouldn't look at closely.

I actually prefer the knurling found on some GI triggers. Barring that serrated works for me.
The one thing I hate though, is three holed Videki ripoffs. I hate, hate, hate them.

My Commander has a serrated one, and I've noticed that after shotting a few magazine's worth, the tip of my trigger finger starts to get tender. I've been toying with the idea of filling in the grooves with something, or filing them down. Might be easier to just buy a new trigger . . .?

Gotta be short and curved. I don't care whether it's serrated or not.

No preference.

No preference in other styles of pistols, either.

I do prefer smooth trigger faces in my DA/DAO revolvers, though.
