What CFW should I run now that I have put my switch down for a few months and it has outdated SXOS and probably ofw 6. I would like to upgrade to 9.0 and play the new Zelda release. What setup is the most stable. Should I stick with sx or go to atmosphere?

Update:

Used ChoidujoirNX to update to 8.1.0 system nand and kept the latest beta of SXOS for now. Everything seems to be working just fine. I'll customize and setup my system a little more when I get time. Just wanted to be able to run Zelda on my breaks. Thanks for the input all ✌️

Use atmosphere with signature patches. It also has emunand support and can do nearly everything sxos can but for free. They have one singular feature of being able to load from an external drive
worse case use both

Atmosphere specifically the kosmos bundle. I used sxos as my main cfw since it released but after atmosphere added everything except xci loader I switched. The main benefits of atmosphere are
crash to atmosphere, better homebrew support, amiibo emulation, and much faster updates. That being said sxos has two advantages which are xci loading (I dont care about this feature because nsp is better in my opinion) and usb support (for nsp installs it makes more sense in my opinion to use a pc to switch install, it can be useful if you want to hoard a bunch of XCI games and only play in docked mode). So as you can see it depends on what features you want but I think overall atmosphere has better features.
