An OFR will hold tune better, just because it's locking at the bridge and at the nut (you SHOULD get a locking nut).

Depends on what ya need though.

a locking nut would require you to tune up again i think. so it probably would't work (i think thats what fine tuners on FRs are for)

Strat trems are generally much more subtle, made for vibrato rather than dives.

heres the question do you want to dive bomb? If you say "yes, than get a FR, if you say "no" than stick with a strat bridge

Strat trems aren't really made to pull up. If you want to raise the pitch subtely or dramaticly (Like how Dimebag does), you'll want a floyd.

Did you see that Prince got lost trying to get to the Golden Globes? I read that TomTom is giving him a free GPS device to help make sure he gets to the Superbowl on time this year Prince lost I know celebs are use to getting free stuff but come on, a brand new GPS because you can't show up on time? He probably got the brand new 910 because it plays mp3s, really nice device - plus tele atlas just released a brand new map for the US so they're pretty much the most accurate on the market. At least he only needs to make it there by halftime...
I don't even care to shake these zipper blues...

bit of a random post that...
any way a floyd is good for extreme whammy stuff but is a bugger to restring maintain and generaly do ANYTHING to since it will go out of tune. maintaining those damn things isn't a skill it's an artform one i can't get my head around. but you can make a strat trem almost as stable as a floyd without the added stress that floating locking trems bring simply by adding locking tuners to increase the tuning stability
