Apache vs Nginx, which HTTP web server you prefer and why?

I have two VPS, and both are self managed. I found somehow Apache web server management is so easy, compared to Nginx and LiteSpeed.
However, mostly managed hosting provider gives you Nginx and LiteSpeed, because of performance.
If you have to manage a VPS for own website or clients, which HTTP webserver you choose?

I choose Apache only if client ask they need .htaccess support. Unlike LS it doesn’t require restarting after configuration changes via .htaccess file.

Mostly, I go for NGINX and it works flawlessly for handling high real time traffic.
