My sucking whistle sounds a lot better than my blowing one, that's for sure!

Both.

I used to work with a guy who could whistle two notes at once - one with his fingers and the other with his mouth. It was incredible to listen to him.

Either one. I can also whistle by blowing air between my tongue and the roof of my mouth, and through my nose, though the tone control isn't quite too good on the latter. I think I control its tone with the back of my throat.
The tongue-on-roof-of-mouth method works best for me; it affords me far better control than I can get with my lips, and they're generally too dry to be able to form the proper geometry.

That's one thing I've never learned to do - those people stick two fingers in their mouth and make an insanely loud whistle. I never learned how to do that, though I imagine I would be capable of such a thing using my own whistling style.
