The main advantages of askbot are:
Features are give or take.
We are developing new features constantly, I'll finish putting dates on the changelog and post a link here soon.
The main reason, I'd say is OSQA is less active than askbot as they are more focused towards QATA (commercial version). I personally started with OSQA but realized quickly that where they are heading too, and I'd decided quickly to move out of that platform.
This is my personal opinion, neither I'm associated with anyof project's development.
Add 1. Main reason is askbot development is open ended and OSQA is close ended, OSQA has no active code branch such as git or similar to support community development, they are got closed code branch and willingly not offering community to contribute into main branch. However both are open source project, but open end project would have more benefits compare to close end in long run.

OSQA seems QATO focused, I certainly believe there is truth in Dzone using OSQA as a lead generation / entry point for prospective Q&A site admins.
