From your experiences, what armies are THE hardest for Tau to fight and what armies are THE easier for Tau to fight against?
Personally, sadly, and regrettably I have literally and in a most serious way have only ever fought Necrons... and Jesus have mercy I cannot EVER NEVER EVER FOREVER win or even die DECENTLY! Necrons by far I think are going to be the hardest for me! WHATS THE POINT OF PUMPING OUT TWO OVERLAPPING RAILGUN SUBMUNITION BLASTS ON THE SAME UNIT FOR ONLY ONE TO MISS THEIR ARMOR SAVE! AND THEN THE NEXT TURN HAVE IT BE ROLLED BACK UP!
Necrons are the most broken army ever! Cheap ass "We'll Be Back" bastards. Grow balls and die like the rest of us.
The Greater Good
Er ... Necrons are one of the easiest -- perhaps even the easiest army to destroy! WBB doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of things. Not when you have tons of plasma flying around. They don't have any decent firepower, they are slow and pokey ... no real trouble at all. Just very annoying.
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.

nerons should be fairly easy for Tau.
select a unit. kill it. move on.
they are slow and have poor weapons.
we'll be back is an annoyance yes but make sure your opponent is using it right.
Hands down dark eldar are the easiest (though if the opponent is good don't expect a sure win). Railguns cut through raiders like butter. for example, if you have a broadside, you can markerlight it up, so 2+ to hit with reroll, then auto-pen, then you have +2 on the chart (3 is wrecked, 4+ becomes explosion). And if they don't work, you can use your small arms as well. I've destroyed a raider with a kroot rifle once. plenty of ap5 around, as well. Only problem I saw was grotesques (can only die from close combat unless the shooting wep is str6 or something like that, I've been told) and mandrakes can get that surprise attack on you with their hiding.
