A 20 feels lower and safer. In fact, the seat of a 24 is only 2 inches (50mm) further off the ground.
There is that, but looking back and knowing what I do now I'm still happy with my choice of a very cheap 20 - a 26 seemed a long way up and I'm sure I'd have found it very intimidating to learn on, and that's only 1" higher than a 24! A 20 is still my weapon of choice to learn new things, even if the aim is to transfer the skills to a bigger wheel, and I still wouldn't prefer a 24 for that.
Unicycling: great for your thighs.
