Question Rain Water Vs Well Water

Does anyone have a large opinion on using Rain Water vs Well Water at all, or a mix of the two? I am only curious because i use a well and someone was giving me a lecture last night about how they only use rain water for their tanks, and thats all they have ever used, and their water parameters are perfect........(they do not have live plants) But doesnt rain water lack all the nutrients that well water may have? I know Rain water can be softer........ I only ask as because i would be worried about the live plants.............

Any opinions or aquarium scientists out there with an opinion?
