Having said that the color development is easier, the conversion of the scanned negatives to positives for digital use is much harder to do. With B/W, you just need to get the tonal range right. With color negatives, you've also got to get the colors right. That is much the hardest part for me.

Actually, in the darkroom that was quite true. I did color negs in the darkroom for five decades but when it dawned on me that you just need to analyze the blank sections of the negative (the clear orange parts) and convert them to neutral gray it was an epiphany. 
Digitally, software like Adobe Camera Raw or Photoshop will get you in the ballpark automatically.
