Have you installed and tried SP5 for 2018 yet? What's your experience been? It's my understanding that the performance of SP3 was terrible. The performance improved with SP4 but it still wasn't on par with SP2.
Have you installed SW 2018 SP 5 or PDM 2018 SP 5 ?
Can give us some feedback on how this version behave.
We haven't installed it yet. We will be working with our VAR, CATI/Inflow-Tech, next week to install it in our development environment. They seem confident that SP5 is good to go but as always, your experience may be different. It's always best to test in your local environment.
I inherited an old production environment where the vault servers and license server are Windows Server 2008 R2. As you know, SOLIDWORKS is no longer compatible with that version. Our SQL server is 2012 R2 so we're OK there. Our VM environment hasn't been upgraded yet so Server 2016 isn't supported. That's leaves us with deploying new 2012 R2 servers to replace the 2008 R2 servers. I'll try to find time to drop some updates next week on the SOLIDWORKS & PDM upgrade.
I haven't had any problems with it, but I'm not using PDM. All my files are just in Windows Explorer. From watching the forum here for some years, while I understand the necessity for PDM in some environments, it also seems like it can also cause problems that wouldn't otherwise be there. When you start adding levels of complexity I suppose that's inevitable.
Installed within a week when it released.
Nothing wrong, no crash.

Also has 2019 SP0 installed.
Ran it on my laptop just to open assembly and check dimensions in the weld shop.
Used online license, took license offline because no wifi in the weld shop.

Touch screen on laptop works well. Easy to zoom, rotate and pan model. Fist time I don't need to read help to use a feature in SWX.
Still setting up screen size so I can read text @.@
