No, there is no such thing of one technology better than the other one.
I was thinking at this stage of film photography, BW is more accessible and attracts more audience. It is harder to set up darkroom for color photo work. It costs about $200 to set up a BW darkroom. But it costs much more for color, from chemical to processor.
Actually I get bored with BW and want to move on to tackle color. It is harder and requires more resource.
No flame, I still like BW. But I feel that I'm missing a lot of things just with BW. Not much can compare to color slides.
You almost never do color printing in open trays. You need to invest a film/print processor. Also, by not doing in the open tray, it takes some of the enjoyment away from printing photos. You can't see the images coming up.
As to the enlarger, all enlargers can do B&W, but only the color head can do color printing. You can argue that any BW enlargers can do color printing with proper filters, but clearly that is a pain to do that.
I hate to state the obvious but has it occured to you that there is 4 times as much interest in B+W on this forum than colour? If it were the other way round colour would be 4 times more active than B+W. It's that simple. It isn't something that needs to be ANALaysed.
