It all comes down to what matters most to each individual player.

To some people, turn-based does indeed feel like an eternal borefest - and we have to accept that.

Personally, I tend to enjoy both ways when done well - but I'd probably lean towards turn-based in singleplayer games and real-time in multiplayer games.
I mostly agree with you. I have however been able to enjoy a few TB games in multiplayer with friends (HOMMIII - hotseat & Civ3,4,5 - times MP).

Playing with friends can be great as you can shout at them to move faster
