Magento 1.x vs Magento 2.x

I'm working on Magento and I want to understand if is a good idea to migrate to Magento 2 or not.

I summarized this differences :

  • Magento 2.0 is faster then Magento 1.x
  • Some significant changes in the structure of directory which reduces the complexity of structure
  • New technologies and latest versions (example Php, Jquery etc)
  • Allows developer to setup automated test easily
  • Many features are now integrate to Magento 2
  • Improvements to checkout and other stuff

My questions:

  1. There is any index to look up to decide when is a good moment to migrate to Magento 2?
  2. There are any hidden issue I have to know before?
  3. Someone ever try this migration? If yes do you see this big improvement?
  4. All my modules (third parts & hand-written) will be obsolete?
  5. Why Magento 1.x is still releasing new security updates if there is Magento 2?

I hope to listen to different experencies or solution to understand if is the right way.

Please if I said something wrong tell me.
