Proven technology is old and "boring". Boring software development may be less risky and a better investment, but it is dangerous as well. Nobody wants to work for an employer that is "lagging behind" on it's technology choices. When you are not exposed to the technology that drives the self-destructing arms race of "latest and greatest" you can not beautify your CV with it. Thus working for such an employer will make you quickly devalue as a knowledgeable software development employee. So, if you want to hire ambitious experienced self-motivated job-hopping software developers you'd better work with the latest technology.
