@tanguatlay,
They're both perfectly acceptable.

I can't think of an instance when they're not interchangeble.

@tanguatlay,
It is two weeks since I came here.
It has been two weeks since I came here.

Both equally acceptable.

I agree. Either one. Damn, what's wrong with us? Are we all turning into wusses? We can't get any controversy going here? We must be getting soft.
