Magento 2 brings about a complete overhaul of Magento to improve performance, scalability and reliability which are all welcome benefits. However, these improvements come at the expense of a new learning curve for merchants and Magento developers, while providing no upgrade path for existing Magento installations. For merchants, the learning curve is minimal as the new administrative interface has similar functionality, but improved speed and organization. From a Magento developer's viewpoint the curve is steeper since learning a new codebase and helping merchants decide on a platform will introduce new business obstacles to navigate. Now that Adobe owns Magento, the platform will likely gear more toward enterprise merchants that need a high degree of scalability from their online storefronts. The Magento 2 developers at WebCitz already have years of experience working through the new codebase and are excited to be developing new projects in Magento 2.
