which is better, copper tubing or the braided hoses they sell at HD?

Soft copper tubing (1/4" for ice maker, 3/8" for dishwasher) with compression fittings. It will last forever. And do not use saddle valves for the ice maker; JUNK!

Those SS braided connectors get eaten up by cleaning products with Chlorine (like the stuff you keep under the kitchen sink).
