I don't have time now, but I will definately be looking into this more.
One more thing, HORSE STANCES ARE THE DEADLY CORRECT STANCE FOR EVERYTHING!!!! Thank you.

the worst thing about squating wide is that people who squat heavy use a wide stance... God damn, like those bastards over at westide barbell, those fucking mastadons move around 1000 lb squats.... boy I sure would hate to lift that kind of weight: http://www.t-nation.com/readTopic.do?id=459775 You may want to check out secret number 1.
Sure would suck to have the posterior chain strength those guys have...

I think I've read that, then forgotten most of it, haha.
Now that my knees have been mostly rehab, I'm getting strength gains slowly.
BUT THAT DOES NOT ANSWER THE QUESTION REALLY!

I squat wide, well wider than shoulder width anyways.
It is more natural for me, I feel mor comfortable and I can control the weight better, I have a more stable base and, it makes my buttocks look sublime.

I'm not exactly sure of your definition of "sumo" squats, but I squat with my feet wider than shoulder width. Like Ronin69 says, that just feels more comfortable, more stable.
Oh yeah, and punching a heavy bag in horse stance, "sprints" where you punch as hard and fast as you can for 60 seconds, is an exercise for exhausting both arms equally.

I also squat wide, a little wider than shoulder width. I don't know if that would count as a sumo squat but like others have said, it jsut feels more natural.

That's because of muscle tightness. You're bypassing flexibility inadequacies in order to make it easier for yourself.

Sumos are better for tall, long-limbed guys as it doesn't stress the knees as much, at least from what I've read. I'm short with average limbs so I can do full squats with no trouble, so I don't really do much with sumos.
