Magento 2 addresses many of the weaknesses of Magento 1, and offers a highly responsive user friendly e-commerce experience. Magento 1’s end of life is scheduled for late 2018, so if you are considering an e-commerce site then Magento 2 should be top of your list. For existing Magento 1 users, support and updates will come to an end following this date, so a move to Magento 2 should be your next step forward.
