I recently took this leap, but on a smaller scale. Even after thorough
local testing on multiple PC and Mac operating systems, my client had
problems. This taught me to wait until well after the first non-beta
release. Once things are truly stable, I will dip my feet back in
these waters. Until then, I am using other development environments.
We only get one chance at first impressions.
