They're both fine and a nice improvement over the default LaTeX book  

As Simon and Themis hinted, the main difference is one of regional  
localization and the native language of the developers --- if you  
need to conform to European standards, Koma will serve you well,  
while if you need to meet American standards, or your mother tongue  
is English you'll be well served by Memoir.
