According to Michael Swan (Practical English Usage, pg 311):
"In British English, like + -ing form is used mostly to talk about enjoyment, and like + infinitive mostly to talk about choices and habits. In American English, like + infinitive is common in both senses. Compare:
- I like climbing mountains. (more typically GB)
I like to climb mountains. (more typically US)
- When I'm pouring tea I like to put the milk in first. (GB/US)"
For the benefit of simplicity and having in mind the struggle of EFL students, I don't see a need to update my link.
