O'Shovah, by far. High WS, high S, DAWN BLADE! Plus, his Ork Fighter ability makes Shas'vres more useful in CC. The Dawn Blade alone is awesome. I love O'Shovah, but I hate the restrictions.

O'Shovah is an absolute monster in close combat. However, I don't think that is worth the disadvantages. Aun'shi is far more useful, he has the benefits of an ethereal, a rending weapon, the parry ability, and his firewarriors get +1 Initiative and +1 attack.

They both have advantages, but O'Shovah is by FAR the better in sheer combat. I've seen him hack though entire Blood Angels assault squads, and even scare the heck out of a fully kitted command squad.

Not really, your paying the cost of space marines for tau that are meant for CC. They are still just as weak and just aren't worth it. Tau were designed to be a shooting army.

Beats me, perhaps they wanted a little more choice and flexibility with how you can use them. Rather than sit at the back and shoot I suppose. But I think that's what stealthsuits and kroot are for.

Wrong. Ork Fighters are not meant for close combat. If you use them in this manner, then you are using them improperly. The Ork Fighter ability is supposed to protect the Tau when the Orks finally get to them. It is a defense mechanism if you will. They shoot the heck out of the Orks, but sometimes that is not enough to stop the power of the WAAAAGH! So +1 WS and +1 I allow the Firewarriors to atleast fight back, rather than simply get slaughtered in combat.

EDIT: And actually.. Farsight Enclave is more shooty than vanilla Tau. Look at their restrictions. The most obvious is no Kroot. Farsight Enclave is mearly prepared for when the time comes.
