I had a system that I pulled out of my farm because it had hardware problems. Now that the problems are fixed I brought it up on v5 the first test was immediately assigned before I had set type of work to request. My bad but not fatal. So its doing a LL test with p-1 ecm factoring just like it would have done on v4 but I want to do Double Checks for a while for my own peace of mind. I still don't know what all the criteria will be when everything is finalized. For that reason I'm holding off for a while on moving the rest. If I lose the work on that system it won't be a great loss and will help a small amount to verify v5 functionality is the way I see it. The process has been going on for two years so I don't think a few more months of waiting will hurt. Some will depend on the type of work you plan to do. I doubt too that GIMPS bandwidth will be adversly affected either. I haven't seen any Green lights in the Forum, rather a somewhat deeeep Orange. George (Prime95) does warn that all work may be lost when the switch is finally made.

I did, but I recommend everyone to start with one machine, gain some experience and only then move more machines. George posted a note somewhere that v5 is not yet intended for pure production use. I am satisfisfied with v5 for my machines though.

All of my running machines are on 25.x, but not v5.

There is a small chance I'll do something boneheaded that corrupts the stats tables causing them to be erased.

The missing piece (to ending beta) is the v4-to-v5 bridge. Scott has written it but wants to test it on a copy of the v5 database. Setting up that database copy has been problematic.

I use v5 for all the work I do on GIMPS now, though that's not saying much since I mainly just use GIMPS for short-term filler work.

V5-only for me. And it's been that way for the last 4 months or so.
