And not to start a religious war, but anyone that uses windows as a scanning platform without doing a load of stack tuning parameters is very trusting.
Once upon a time the nessus guys said "use unix but if you must use windows look at these settings" and we found the scanners missed stuff on a xp platform occasionally. Now they say the preferred scan platform is windows. I'd flag that as a sellout commercially, since more buyers buy windows products.

It depends on the job. For scanning a single host and avoiding detection nmap is good. For scanning ranges of IP addresses scanrand is strong. If one wants to scan UDP services Unicorn scan is the best, from my experiences.
