Drywall/metal screws into steel studs

A neighbour told me that drywall screws have greater holding power than metal screws when screwed into steel studs. Is this true, and if so, why?
Thanks in advance for your helpful replies.

Drywall screw is better for hanging drywall mostly because of the" bugle head" , a modified flathead that flares out shallower and flater to give more gripping surface. Use a fine thread sharp point for most steel studs, a drill point screw for thicker ones. The fine thread cuts a self matching thread in the stud. If you are talking about fastening the studs to other studs the fine thread is finer than most sheet metal screws, more grip, the sharp point will usually cut as fast or faster than most self tapping sht metl screws. the buglehead is thinner than sheet metal screw head, less bulge. And you don't have to have two kinds of screws to get mixed together in your pouch.
