Maven or Gradle?

Currently, I am migrating from Java to Kotlin. One of the changes I am not making is to move from Maven to Gradle. This is something we should probably discuss company wide to do or not.

I am curious about your thoughts, which do you prefer: Maven or Gradle? What made you to move? Or did you switch back?

I would prefer Gradle over Maven anytime,the clear syntax is one of the big problems for me. Concerning the utility I still haven't dug too deep insight complex projects to really compare that aspect of things.

If this project is an Android, then exactly Gradle.

On a personal project, anything but maven. On a company project, nothing but maven.
