New doesn't always mean better. I suggest you stick to whatever your comfortable with.
I remember one time I was in a resto, theres this group of students that I think were doing a homework or research on their laptop, I was hearing their conversation because they were loud.
Guy1: wow! windows 7 ba yan? astig! yan ung bagong labas diba?,
Guy2: uu nga, ano ba bago sa windows 7?
Guy1: basta mas maganda yan! bagong labas eh.
I mean, Basta bagong labas astig na? You dont even know kung ano ba meron sa 7? o sa vista. I stick to whats already tested or subok na and nakasanayan ko nang gamitin.
