Can someone give me a recommendation about what will be the best way to develope a own project based on Map Window GIS (or Map Window 6)?

At first I thought to develope a Plugin for Map Window GIS (v 4.7 or 4.8) but now I'm not sure anymore. Because than I found the next generation of that project which is Map Window 6.  I had a look at the state of this project and read a bit at this discussion forum. Everyone is telling about the very early state and for serios applications it is recommendated to use Map Window GIS instead.

How big will be the investment when I program a Plugin for Map Window GIS 4.8 and migrate the project later to Map Window 6 which is using the dotSpatial API? How big are the differences between both? Will there be the same way to implement Plugins? How big is the difference between dotSpatial functionality and the Map Window 6 application?

Before I start it would be nice to know a useful way and not to waste time.

Thanks a lot for opinions to this topic.
