Is oil based paint better?

Improvements in acrylic, water borne paint technology has improved substantially.
The result is a quick drying acrylic-latex paint which levels well, cleans up with water, and can stand up to severe wear and tear.
In addition, latex paints do not yellow. Because of the nature of their composition, oil base paints (particularly whites and off-whites) begin yellowing almost the moment they are applied. Not only does this result in a gradual discoloration of the paint film, it makes touch-up increasingly difficult as time passes.
Oil-base primers, interior enamel and industrial grade enamel are still available in their original formulation and perform well.
