comment Which knot for climbing: figure eight, yosemite bowline, bowline on a bight?
The only arguments I have ever heard for the yosemite Bowline are from an "engineering" stance. But the ease of (tying and checking) the 8 make it the choice of most climbers. I agree with you.

@Mr.Wizard that is a double. You can't (safely) use a single for climbing. Only a double, be it a figure 8 follow through into a harness loop or you could use a figure eight on a bight to a carabiner. Either knot is the same once tied though. Both are pretty easy to untie once you know how. If no one ever took the 30 second to show you the trick to untie them it can be very difficult.
