I think that Pokerstars is more friendly for someone just starting out. Full Tilt doesn't really have very much selection in the micro buy-in levels. You can certainly play on Full Tilt, it's just harder to find a game that won't have you playing over your bankroll.
FT does have a lot of players, but PS has even more. (Right now FT has 59642 people online, PS has 110680.)
In my opinion, Pokerstars has a better selection of small buy-in tournaments that draw large fields (which means that they pay out more spots, have larger prize pools, and have many more weak players) compared with Full Tilt. I do like Full Tilt's larger guaranteed tournaments ($26 buy-in and up) though.
Both sites have a good selection of ring games for Holdem, but I generally play other games if I want to sit at a ring table. I find that Pokerstars generally has a much better table selection in Stud and Omaha.
