Oak Log Home Interior Wall: Should I use water or oil based matte poly

last year

I have built a oak log home. I am puzzled as to what matte polyurethane I should use. I hate a shiny surface, so that's why I've chosen a matte polyurethane. Sashco offers a matte poly, but it is oil based. I've been told, "Once you use oil, you will forever need to use oil", so I'm leaning toward water based. Has anyone used a water based matte polyurethane for a log home? And if so, how did you like it and what did you find were the disadvantages of using this product?
