Which versions of OS X & FMS do you recommend for a new SSD HD?

Hi Everyone,


Over the next week or so, I have the opportunity to upgrade the HD in our FM Server, a MacPro 4,1, to an SSD for our local users and seek your recommendations on the currently preferred versions of FMS and OS X.


Currently we are rumming FMS 12.0.3 on OS X 10.8.2 with all clients on FMP 12.0.5. I've been reluctant to update the OS for fear of encountering incompatibility with the Java version needed for the Admin Console. I'm currently thinking we should go for OS X 10.9.2 with FMS 13 as we'll certainly be updating all clients to FMP 13.2 sometime later this year.


Other times I'd have preferred to stay with a legacy OS instead of choosing to live on the cutting edge of OS developments, but after watching posts on TechNet these last few months, I've see few reports of issues with OS X 10.9.2 (non server) and FMS V13.


Can anyone provide an argument for not proceeding in this way?
