This is not a technical question but a question that i have myself. We updated to magento2 some months ago, but we have a lots of our business concurrent reversed to magento 1.9. After a check on Mage Scan website https://magescan.com/stats we see only around 4% of magento users uses the Magento 2.x.x. I would like to know the reason why Magento 2 isn't used more than that? Thanks.
I would not bother with all this, those data is not an indicator at all. do not even worry about your competitors, maybe they are silently sinking already, who cares?
from engineering point of view - this is correct way - you don't rush - usually freshly released software have lots of bugs and compatibility and expandability issues.
like many users stuck in magento 2.2.x dead branch.
