Been to both briefly for business reasons. Based on my business experiences in each, I'd choose Jackson.

I've spent time in both and like them both for what is expected of a metro of that size. In-town Jackson is grittier and has more suburban retail development (also issues between state legislature and Jackson). Montgomery city limits is better and has a lot more retail development therefore it helps the cities tax base which gives it the better infrastructure. I prefer Montgomery but Jackson does have a better location (Dallas, Houston, Memphis, New Orleans, Atlanta, Nashville and Birmingham under 6 hour drive)

Eh, I think location is probably a tie. Montgomery is closer to the good Gulf Coast beaches of Alabama and Florida, Atlantic Coast beaches near Savannah and Jacksonville, Atlanta, and the mountains and the cities in the vicinity (Chattanooga, Knoxville, Asheville).
