howdy!

One of the developers I’m looking to use on my new magento site is recommending to stick to 1.4 rather than 1.5 indicating it’s more “powerful/compatible/more free extensions being available”.

Welcome pros/cons from the assembled.

I would actually suggest 1.5 is a better bet to last you into the future.
Upgrading versions of Magento is never easy or straightforward, so that is something to avoid doing very often.

Also, 1.6 is on the verge of being released, so if you stick with 1.4, you will soon be two versions behind.

Regards
