After using other shopping carts, I’m moving to Magento per the request of various clients. I see that ver 1.7.0.0-rc1 has a massive list of improvements over the Stable ver 1.6.2.0.

Being new to Magento, I’m not familiar with how quickly the next stable upgrade will be, but I’d like to utilize these new improvements if it’s recommended. If launch is planned about 2 months should I start building on 1.6 and upgrade or 1.7 when stable?

My thought process is that I’d like to begin learning/using from the most recent version, but I’d like to hear from the Magento community…

at least with 1.6.2.0 you know what to expect,
with 1.7 and 2, you’ll be in a middle of a swamp of bugs and problems ....
who needs this in business??

Is ist useful to start with the lower version 1.6.x and upgrade later to 1.7?
I think the extensions are not all compatible with 1.7
