We use Odoo 9 for all our customers and already have several in production.
It's stable, but its still possible that you find a bug. It should not be an issue since Odoo Enterprise has a bugfix guarantee service: all reported bugs are fixed within a day or two. I checked our support tickets: 25 reported bugs are not solved yet, the oldest one has been reported 2 days ago. (Most of them are very tricky use cases that you will probably not encounters). --> we already have hundreds of Odoo Enterprise on Odoo 9, so 25 is a small number.
Starting on 8 today would be a big mistake! The time saved by using Odoo 9 instead of 8 will LARGELY compensate the very few number of bugs you might encounter on 9. Especially since a bug should not cost you anything since Odoo SA fixes every reported bug very quickly. (Way faster that the time you will need to go into production)
PS: I have seen several partners going to Odoo 9, and several are still on 8. Usually, the reason is that they are not familiar with the new version yet.
Odoo 9 is production ready. We've just installed the community edition for a customer. They are using CRM, Sales, Warehouse and Inventory right out of the box with no problems. The biggest improvements to v9 include user interface and accounting re-write. The interface is much smoother and fast. Just make sure you double check things in accounting module before going live.
Just to add to this conversation.. We have found Odoo 9 (community) unstable - at a point in its lifespan when I would expect it to be stable. Recommended modules for things like Magento do not work. The app interface stalls regularly. Template editing for emails doesn't work in the interface and has to be corrected within the database directly. For reference, we've used the Bitnami stack, to minimise the risk of outside issues/factors.
In addition to bugs, there are numerous other reasons why Odoo 9 doesn't seem fit for commercial use - most third party apps have not been ported from v8 to v9. Configuration options are severely lacking, especially around the use of emails. We've now stepped back from our Odoo 9 rollout to Odoo 8 which so far is much more stable and better supported.
