Using JTDS driver

I have here a situation. I have a almost release ready (release in 2 month) application that runs queries on the microsoft Sql-Server database.We use the standard Microsoft jdbc driver implementation for sql-server. Works great,no problems.

Now there come a developer to me and says that i we should switch our default jdbc implementation to the the JTDS driver implementation.

I read in the web a little about the driver and its benchmarks and so on , and it really seems to perform a little better the the driver from Microsoft.

But taking in consideration the release soon and that the driver is opensource and all the other stuff that i currently dont think of it right now , would you invest your time to make the switch?
