    more artistic than scientific

    Hi,

    I intend to express the meaning that Cloud Computing Optimization should be considered to be artistic, not simply scientific, and I think calling it art is closer to its essence than calling it science.

    Which sentences of the following are correct?
    1. Cloud Computing Optimization is more artistic than scientific.
    2. Cloud Computing Optimization is not so scientific as artistic.
    3. Cloud Computing Optimization is not so much scientific as artistic.
    4. Cloud Computing Optimization is not so much a science than an art.
    5. Cloud Computing Optimization is more of an art than a science.

    Thank you

    Re: more artistic than scientific

    1. Cloud Computing Optimization is more artistic than scientific. OK, but #5 is better, in my opinion.
    2. Cloud Computing Optimization is not so scientific as artistic. No.
    3. Cloud Computing Optimization is not so much scientific as artistic. OK, but #4 is better, in my opinion.
    4. Cloud Computing Optimization is not so much a science than ​as an art. Fine.
    5. Cloud Computing Optimization is more of an art than a science. Fine.

    Re: more artistic than scientific

    6. ... is more art than science.

    I agree with piscean completely on the ones you have listed.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
