vSphere 6 is coming! February 2nd!

I don't know about you guys, but I am super excited about this next release of vSphere! They are boasting significant updates to their core technology. In vSphere 6, their integrated products for management of hybrid cloud environments are supposed to be more tight knit.

Anyone get a chance to beta test it?

Check out this article announcement:
With vSphere 6, VMware is trying to make sure its flagship product works smoothly with its newer technologies. If successful, VMware should have a much easier path to getting customers on board with its software-defined data center vision.

Is this something we should wait a year or so after roll-out to embrace? I know there were many issues with upgrading from 5.1 to 5.5 regarding patches etc. Would it be better to install vSphere6 from a fresh install and migrate the VMs to it or would a standard CLI upgrade be stable?
For instance, I am still on 5.1 U2 with my hosts. Can I make that big a jump or must I perform a 'step' upgrade to 5.5, then 6?
