Using Dalvik
Using Dalvik; IMO, many apps incompatible with ART

It's getting better, but the main reason i'm on dalvik is because of the xposed framework

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!

Same. I wish there was an xposed module to change icon size using the Sense launcher.

I have used both for about a month each just to test them out. With ART there were some noticeable differences as far as smoththness and how fast apps open. None of the apps I use crashed. As far as battery life goes there was no big difference for me. I get all day heavy use on one charge either way and I plug in every night. These were both tested on Stock unrooted Roms. Staying on Dalvik though as that seems to be the most compatible way to go after root and customization.

ART is slick as hell, can't wait until it becomes standard.
