I didn't check the fortune 500 listings or anything, but I'm under the impression Coke won the cola war(by a little; and I prefer pepsi). It seems homebrewers either prefer or are more able to find ball lock kegs. Wouldn't there be more Coke kegs on the market making them more common? Who won the corny keg war?
I partly ask because I gave a friend a pin lock keg to induce him to give up bottling.

I don't know this, but I was told that it was not so much about who "won" but rather liability tolerance for selling pressure vessels.

Many more brands than just Pepsi used ball lock kegs. Seven Up and Royal Crown Cola, to name two. I also have four 3-gal ball-lock cornies that were used to hold bar mixers (grenadine, ornage juice, cream and other mixers), not soda. None of my ball lock kegs are actually "Pepsi" kegs.
AFAIK, only Coke used pin lock.
