Joomla 1.6 vs Joomla 1.5

Good Morning,
I was wondering if someone could tell me what I may be missing by not upgrading to joomla 1.6.
I have started a few projects of late and started with 1.6 and quickly found that my templates didn't work as well, the virtuemart shopping cart can't be used and a whole bunch of other things that made me reinstall 1.5 and use it.

What am I missing by not using 1.6 yet? I am sure that eventually all templates and components etc will become better but at the moment I am still wanting to use 1.5??

Anyone else experiencing the same kind of thing?

There are some other minor enhancements in the admin user interface, the ability to style templates easily and the ability to have infinitely nested categories, but basically it is as snowball suggests an incorporation of ACL.
