Everything works just fine so far. On Clean ROM the extended boot menu didn't work, on CM it works as it should.
The reason I'm now on ART and will stay there is to try to overcome any problems that may arise since Dalvik is set to vanish from Android very soon.
OK, I've established in my own mind at least that CyanogenMod will work with ART, no apps complained or any other problems except one as follows:
I run the CM nightlies and have notice the reboot is VERY slow! The section that says now "updating application x of xxx" takes about twice as long as when I'm running Dalvik.
So I'm back on Dalvik just to speed things up a bit since the install and reboot is an almost daily event.
As far as CyanogenMod is concerned, I can't find any advantage to ART or Dalvik nor do I see any drawback to either other than the minor slowness during a reboot when running ART.
As always, YMMV!
