Daniel, in short, we've found ISIS to be slightly easier to maintain and 
run, with slightly more peace of mind in terms of securitiy than OSPF. 
Performance and stability wise, no major difference that was noticable.

For more information, see the talk by Dave Katz at 
http://www.nanog.org/mtg-0006/katz.html

Also, AOL's experience in switching from OSPF to ISIS is covered at 
http://www.nanog.org/mtg-0310/gill.html
the PDF on that page is actually an older version. The full version I 
used at NANOG is available at http://www.vijaygill.com/oi.pdf
