ORA-01652: add or resize datafile?

Another question asked you how to handle the following error: ORA-01652: unable to extend temp segment by 250 in tablespace TEMP. Your answer was to add another datafile. Is there a reason why you shouldn't use "Alter database datafile 'xxxx' resize xxx". Is it better to add another file as opposed to increasing the size of the datafile?

Either option is valid. But, if you've reached your file size limit for your OS or something like that, then your only recourse would be to add another datafile.
