Widgets and the BlackBerry OS version

Besides building widgets, I'm also partially in charge of managing devices around the company. I've been dealing with variations on the phone OS and how my widgets act on these.


My question, is there a prefered available OS I should have? I know the "latest is the greatest" mindset will probably apply, but any insight would be helpful. Is there a certain OS level I should shoot for that will get me through a smooth release?


Right now I have a couple of 9700's @  and a couple @ I'm planning on moving mine to


We also have a couple 8530s. One is at 4.6 and the rest are at some level of OS 5 (not sure the exact).
