I work for a small, independent publishing company. We have a cranky old .NET site which we want to switch to shining, valiant, generally lovely Drupal. I had planned a medium-sized build and migration project to kick-off in January, with completion in the spring.
My question is this: should we hang around for Drupal 7.x to come out? Is there any way of predicting when this will be? If we do go with 6.x, and given the changes to core, will it be complex to upgrade in the future?
Also, why oh why is there not yet a simple preview of 7.x written, something that explains the key differences in layman's terms?
Any advice much appreciated. Thanks
