You answered your question right there, but since you asked, I will give my opinion.
I used to HATE Glock, I mean absolutely hate them. Wouldn't buy once, shoot one, or even touch one lest I might catch some terrible illness. Then one day I picked one up, played with it a bit, ended up actually like it and buying it. It was a Glock 17. Shot it a while, liked it, so I bought another for carry, a Glock 26.
A couple months back I was at another local gun store, and they had a little cardboard display on the counter that had 3 plastic M&Ps, each with the different backstrap. I picked up the small, liked it. Picked up the medium, liked it more, but when I picked up the one with the large backstrap, I kid you not a ray of sunshine shined down one me, and angels came down and sang to me. I knew I had to have it. So I traded in my Glock 17 and bought a M&P9 with no thumb safety, mag disconnect or frame lock, and couldn't be happier.
Don't get me wrong, I like Glocks, and will recommend them, but I like M&Ps more. They fit my hand better, I like the aggressive slide serrations, I like the ambi slide lock, I prefer the trigger, plus a few other things.
I still carry that Glock 26, but when funds allow I'm gonna pick up a M&P9c that will be my new EDC once it's proved reliable, and the Glock will probably get moved to a truck gun.
In the end, it doesn't matter what we like, it's all about what makes a ray of sunshine shine down upon you and angels come and sing you a song.
