The string brand doesn't matter. It varies from person to person.
I had breakage problems with EB's when I used them ages ago, but Steve Vai uses them and he's a massive trem wanker and they work fine for him.
They'll be fine.

IMO Ernie Ball strings rust easily, so unless you have the patience and time to change strings, I wouldn't go with it. D'addarios, for me, last ages and they come in lots of varieties.

I second that. Ernie Ball strings are apparently just D'Addario seconds (according to the guy at my local guitar store after he found out I use D'Addario)

Depends, if you have six guitars with float trems, it will take a while. Ernies and DDs are that best strings to use for FRs. Also, depends on what pickups you use, FRs make a bit of a rattle after you put it back to place after a dive or a pull. Ceramic or other high output pickups will latch onto that noise and amplify it.

I had no intention of stating that EBs are bad. EBs are great but they don't last all that long. EBs are definitely not DDs rejects. I don't like the new DDs because, "to save the environment", they package the strings together and use colour coding instead to differentiate the strings. This is bad because I happen to be colour-blind and it is very hard to feel the difference between some string widths.

I hate these threads. It doesn't matter.

Different strings work for different people because every persons genetic makeup is different. String corrosion is affected by the guitar they are on, how often the person plays, how hard/fast the person plays, the properties of the players sweat and how often/much they sweat, the enviromnment the player plays in, and more.

Brand has nothing whatsoever to do with it. Just try different brands until you find one that works for you. Most of the other posts in this thread are irrelevant.
