I used to use NMM until I had to update it and it didn't work so I decided to look for another mod manager, so I came across MO and I've been using it ever since. The only problem I ever encountered was being unable to open some fomod files. The way I got around this was by running FOMM through MO and it worked perfectly fine.

The mod manager that I use the most is MO. I like the flexibility it gives with profiles. One profile is used for testing and another is used for my actual game. If a mod passes testing I then add it my game. When I upgrade mods I do the same thing - i copy the testing profile, update the mod and then test it.
The only issue that I have had with it so far in Fallout are body mods. In Skyrim I have had no issues but so far I have not been able to get them to take properly with FO... (95% certain the issue is on my end...)...

I use FOMM because in my opinion it's just way easier to use and isn't really much of a hassle to use.

BTW @rest_in_pepperoni you should add a poll to this topic. You don't have to for any reason, it's just my suggestion.
Funnily enough i don't know how to, no worries anyway i enjoy reading the responses

I use NMM it works pretty good for me and pretty straight forward, it's also pretty easy to add in mods from outside sources so you can use it for all the mods you want, other than enbs and what not.

Nmm has an easier approach, but not every mod can be installed with it.
So i will have to say Fomm.

FOMM is a lot more stable and works better but I also recommend having NMM installed for easier downloading of mods, it's quite handy.

I use NMM only because it was the first mod manager I came across and I didn't bother trying to use any other. NMM is really easy and picks up any .esm or .esp file so you can use it for enbs or manual mods
Moral of the story, don't snort RedBull... it's painful

Update: I have had FOMM version 0.14.11.12 by Q Timeslip and kaburke installed for about a week. Right-off the bat they fixed the issue with mod integration versus version 0.13.21. There is still a matter of various mod menu integration issues though these issues may be the cause of mod conflicts. Otherwise 0.14.11.12 has been the most solid out of all the releases.
Edit: The best part about 0.14.11.12 is they have integrated L.O.O.T. sorting support.
