I have used both nodeprofile and bio and they are both good modules but I 
think recent changes to bio make it just a bit better. As noted elsewhere, 
bio now has the ability to put fields on the registration page. Better yet, 
it has the ability to _selectively_ put them there, not just dump the whole 
node there. Plus, nodeprofile has two module dependencies. Bio is a lighter 
solution. I like both modules and nodeprofile is the way to go if you want 
multiple node profiles for sure. But if anything would be considered for 
core, I would recommend bio as it is a lot lighter weight.
