I much prefer the advantages of the Roth also.

So, when you convert a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA, the tax dollars have to come from another source? They can't come out of the traditional IRA? I no longer have the cash laying around to pay the taxes, especially if I'm going to be out of work (company screwed me big time).
