You are confusing the terms "fortepiano" with "pianoforte". A fortepiano was the precursor of the modern piano, a term which was shortened from pianoforte.

That said, I prefer a good performance no matter which instrument is used, although I think it is easier to put across music from the 18th century on the appropriate period instrument.
Thanks for the correction. Mods, if you could please correct in the poll and title, I'd appreciate it.
