  • Many critical modules haven't been updated for Drupal 8 and this is the biggest showstopper right now. Drupal should design a smooth upgrade path for all D7 sites as well.

  • Same problem here. D8 is a stick in the mud when it comes to migration. It was pretty simple to get from d5 to d6 to d7 but d8 is a total different game. I hate it.

  • On several new D8 installs we had to go back to D7 because the 3rd party modules and themes (we use) are still not working properly on D8. That is for us the major issue moving to D8.
