Which drummer of the classic era ( I am excluding Alan White because he didn't play on most of the albums) do you prefer more??

Actually White played on more albums than Bill. 

No vote, I can't choose, I cannot vote against Bill and I cannot vote against Phil.

Nailed it Tom.
Pretty even skills-wise methinks (most folks probably laugh at such a statement and yet have never heard Brand X). I just prefer Collins' style.

Bruford is technically a very good drummer, but he tends to play in a style I really don't like (too jazz influenced).

Collins is less flashy but so precise and so in tune with his band mates.

It's like comparing Allan Holdsworth and Steve Hackett: Holdsworth is technical perfection, but Hackett makes far better music (for me).

Bill Bruford is my favorite drummer.

I really like both styles. Collins is definitely next after Bill when I am ranking drummers, like his style much more than Neil Peart style although he´s really great too.

My vote, Bruford.  Collins is very good but Bruford is one of those rare, special talents.

perhaps with the keyboardists we'll get the bagel that some fool denied us in the bassist category.  Most thinkers, not the fanboys, should fully realize that Banks was the musical weak link of that group.  Rutherford was decent,  Hatchett fully capable but CRIMINANALLY underused, Collins talented enough I suppose, but Banks... urgggg...

anywho.. for this one... not the Bruford idolizer some are. I don't think Yes were THAT unhappy to see him go for his limitations as drummer which White was able to fill.

So a draw.. and no vote.
I find your lack of Bassoon disturbing.....

Exactly, White played on more Yes albums than Bruford.

To the question, both Collins and Bruford are great drummers, but my vote goes to Bruford.
Not only for his work with Yes, but also how he played for King Crimson, and also his solo works.
There is also a recording where he played with Genesis, where I could hear that I like his drumming style more than that of Collins, because of the jazzy vibe he added to the songs.

^ Collins sited at some point that Mahavishnu Orchestra was an influence on him and he tried to bring that into Genesis. 
Don't forget about Brand X...

I did not forget about Brand X. I did not say that Collins cannot play jazz/rock/fusion. He is a good drummer and can play everything.
It is just that he is no contest to the jazz/rock that Bill Bruford plays with Earthworks or his collaborations with Patrick Moraz and many others.
Plus he added something special to the Genesis songs when he played on them.

"Banks was the musical weak link of that group"

Horsesh*t. Utter complete horsesh*t. 

Banks may have been quite an unpleasant and domineering personality, but his musical talent is undeniable. And I'm no Genesis fanboy.
