As far as I know, they both have the same meaning, but to judge by the Ngram Viewer results (see link), the version with "is" has been the unequivocal favorite for at least a hundred years.

They could both be correct.

What's the context?

Hi


I don’t have context. I can across the sentence and both were used so I am wondering if context makes a difference?
