I would agree with that philosophy up to a point. It is definitely a
matter of personal preference; however, for myself, I NEVER install
version X.0 of any software if said software is to be used in a mission
critical situation. I always wait until X.1 is released. If possible in
your case, would it be feasible to wait until 9.1 is released? You
can gather some info on it here:
<>. As usual, any
correlation between the expected release date and the actual date is
purely coincidental. Just my 2=C2=A2 on the matter.
