well comparing to more and more frequent down times, and a data loss..
i think a system which prove to be at least twice stable than current
will be a big advantage.
But you will never know before you try.
And again: who maintaining squeaksource? Nobody.
And now ask yourself: how you will manage your risks in such situation?
Will you prefer, maybe a bit flaky system, which has a maintainer who
will eventually fix all issues,
or a system which "lets hope it will works a bit more" and nobody who
are maintaining it?
I don't expect that new stuff will be _sohhh_ _goooood_ out of the
box. What i do expect however, that new system will be actively
Otherwise if we don't have such guarantees then i don't see reason do
migrate at all, because couple years later we will be in same
situation: having problems but nobody to address them.
