Canada is terrible for this. In Winter, Ontario & Quebec (just above New York) gets as low as -40. In summer, we can reach as high as 50C with humidity, although the normal temperature is 30-40 with humidity. That's like 86-122F in summer, but it's not dry heat - it's wet, sticky, gross heat with an equally unpleasant warm wind.
I have a disease where sometimes, 30C / 86F will feel really, really cold, and sometimes, 18C will feel really hot. It's odd :s
Around 60F is just perfect for me, or perhaps around 60F to 50F. By the way, you're getting this from a person who's hometown has weather of around 90F. xD
I actually like cold weather, but not freezing cold. Then you don't have to think about "WHAT CLOTHES DO I WEAR!?" (which I hardly do anyway) because you're just going to wear a ski jacket. And in this case I'm talking about 32F and below.
The more precious the thing is, the more easily it is broken.

New England is pretty much cold all year long, so to me anything 50 degrees and above is considered warm. xD Still, I agree that hot weather pwns cold weather. I just hate being trapped inside all the time, and when it's cold out, you tend to stay inside more. 70 to 80 degrees is probably the ideal temperature to me. (: By the way, I'm loving the thread title. xD
Well, it's been quite some time since I last saw the sun. It's been pretty cold for the past few months, so I guess I'd prefer hot weather for now. It actually varies for me. But, I think I like hot weather better.
Anything under 0C (32F) is cold. Once you hit -30C (-22F), it's freezing.
24C (75F) is warm and perfect. Anything higher than that is too hot for me. D:
If I had to pick one extreme, I'd probably prefer the cold. At least you can bundle up a lot when you know it'll be cold or when the heat's out. But when it's way too hot and there's no air conditioning? :( Naked's the best you can get and that's rarely a viable (or socially acceptable) option.
For me, as long as it's not hot to the point where I'm complaining, I'm pretty cool. Cause y'know, I'm allergic to heat of some sort, and I just got over that sickness cause it was too hot in my house a while ago. ;__;
I'd prefer the cold way more than the heat. Florida's cold is perfect. It actually feels pretty awesome. XD
60F is too cold for me. I'm good with anything around 70-85. Not too hot, not too cold. I'm made of skin and bones, so I get cold easily. But when you're hot, you can't do much about it with either sitting in front of the air conditioning or getting naked. I'll take the former.
45F to 80F or 10C to 25C (not exact conversions) I'd say are the ranges of temperatures that I won't complain about. I'm used to hot weather, though that's not to say I don't feel uncomfortable in a heatwave. I get cold quite easily, so I often wear at least three layers of clothing when it's below 10C.
I'm pretty strange, from a range of the coldest I've ever seen (probably -1F/-18C) to 85F/29C, I can think it's nice. It's all relative to the conditions. 85F, heck, even 65F can be way too hot for me if the sun is shining, the humidity is up, and there is no wind. Yet 85F can also feel near nice to me if there is no humidity, it's cloudy, and there is wind. Above that it's hard to say, though. After a day of 105F, 85F can be a nice break.
On the other hand, if it's really cold but there is no wind it's really just nice to me. The sun can also make cold temperatures feel much warmer.
I just really don't like the feeling of the sun. I do like seeing everything brightened by the sun at times, but the feeling of it on my skin just makes even cooler temperatures hot to me.
With that said I am a cold weather lover. I much prefer it to be colder! The cold is so much easier to deal with. Even if the heater somehow breaks down (which ours hasn't ever.) there are still more layers or blankets to keep warm. In fact I just love having all of the covers on my bed. It's just a lot more comfortable to sleep in. (one reason why I hate Spring so much. Not the flowers not the greenery, just the fact that it gets warm way too fast and we don't turn the air conditioner in our house on until June... when we've already had constant 80 degree days. There's no place for covers in that situation. =( ) There's also the fact that my family's air conditioner (which was installed either shortly after or before I was born... 21 years ago) just isn't working so well anymore. Freon has to be put into it every single year now, and it can never properly battle the constant heat of our summers.
There's also the fact that I just find cold weather precipitation to be so pretty. We had this horrible ice storm which nearly destroyed all of our trees, and knocked power out for several people for weeks... But I personally thought it was one of the most beautiful things I had ever seen. I hate warm weather storms. Rain is alright, better than the sun... But tornadoes and golf ball sized hail I really could do without.
Also it should be noted that where I live tends to have bipolar winters. The winter before this one we just passed, was about as bipolar as you get before everybody starts running around saying that the world is ending. (Although, I'm sure if this happened elsewhere you WOULD have people like that.) It can and will get up into the 80s and, yes, even the 90s during the winter (with snow on the ground the next day!). So, like, there is no escaping the heat. And with an air conditioner that is so expensive to run, we can not deal with this bipolar weather.
So yes, cold weather is superior. No debate. =P Unless you are poor and live somewhere where it gets extremely cold, then there is debate.
Dear lord, that was a loooongg post... But the extremely bipolar weather where I live can excuse that, right? =P
For me, it honestly depends on the season... for instance, I would consider 60-70F quite warm in the winter/spring, but a nice, cool day in the summer/autumn. Minnesota temperatures are freaky like that... in fact, it was 23F three weeks ago on a Thursday morning, and by the following Monday, the high was 72F, iirc.
