Pixhawk vs MikroKopter

Hello guys! Pretty excited since this is my first message to the forum. So I am a kind of newbie to this area but did lots of research these days and finally narrowed down my choices to MK or Pixhawk autopilot since they are open source. However I couldn't find any detailed comparison of these two(ok Pixhawk is pretty new maybe that is why). What I think is Pixhawk autopilot seems very promising since everything integrated and DIYdrones community seems very active but on the other hand MikroKopter has been in this market for longer and seems more experienced. Does anybody can help me to find out which has what advantages over other?

Since when is Mikrokopter opensource? It's as closed source as they get.

My sincere advice? At this point for you, open source is a negative, not a positive. Get a DJI Naza Lite and go flying. When you want to mess around, tune stuff and do autonomous flying, get a Pixhawk.

Actually my personal impression is that also Pixhawk is better but I wonder how hard is it to implement and tune it? For example I have a MK already and that was the reason why I was comparing MK with Pixhawk. I saw on the Pixhawk website it is supporting MK (http://pixhawk.org/firmware/apps/mkblctrl) but is it simple as just changing flight-ctrl with Pixhawk?
