Fund choice based on dividend payout?

Hi All:
I have a question that I haven't found the answer to anywhere. Maybe it is because it is a dumb question, or maybe I just don't know where to look.
If you were trying to decide wether to invest in one of two funds which has the same basic asset allocation, historically similar performance, longevity, etc. Would the frequency of the dividend payout (quarterly vs semi-annually) be a deciding factor in the fund choice? Thanks

Only if receiving quarterly dividend income is convenient. It makes absolutely no difference otherwise.
