There can be any reason to choose for V7 or V8 Ihmo, but the interface cannot be the main reason. Currently if you develop for mobile I would stay with 7 with the knowledge that there will not be any updates. The issues in 8 will be solved, although I have no clue how long it will take. We are developing large systems in 8 with no mobile component (well, it needs to run on tabs, but not on phones) and currently we do not have severe issues. But it's a fact that there are a lot of things in 8 to be solved and partly it's also about fixing bugs which are present in 7 and moved to 8. They will not be solved in V7 so finally you will be forced to make the move.
I understand Bilouchka very well. But I still think my answer is valid. We actually only work in 8 now and we don't have much issues. But that doesn't mean that 8 is better than 7 only that we don't touch them. However the bugs in 8 will be fixed (sometime but when...) in 7 definitely not.
I don't agree with only one single in this post, that sc8 interface is ugly, can i correct this!? it looks better (to me) but the effects used to display stuff like to-do-list and the images upload are really not needed for developers, even take memory and cache for nothing, developers need stable strong fast environment, i usually change even windows visual effects and themes since windows 98, functionality and speed with quick response is the aim of developers but effects and nice layout stuff are for end users, that is my opinion
all other being said is true, including sc8 is full of bugs, oh yeah, i stopped using it and stuck to sc7 long weeks back, now happy with sc7 until they fix it as Albert says, then i will convert the projects, but hopefully the convert option doesn't have bug loool
I'am use SC8 since version .007 ... That's stable enough. With bugs yes, but not unusable such as some user mean ...
I guess it depends on what you are using in your project, basically many functions are working fine, but for specific things have bugs, and happens to need all of them in your project then it is full of bugs. As per v007 and later, many things were fixed, but before that, specially up to version 003 it was hell, see the bugs forum thread and note the dates of reporting.
When someone say is full of bugs doesn't indicate is not stable, as said before, depends on what you need to use in the project. I have pretty big project created with many functions using SC8, for other projects, i faced many issues with sc8 repeatedly so turned back to sc7... but finally will convert project to sc8 and use it, it is so nice after most of the bugs being fixed.
