Absolutely not. Angular 9 is simply not ready yet.

Here's my experience.

Installed 9. Created a project. Added @angular/material. Tons of compile errors. Did cache clean --force, compile errors gone. Added a material component, more compile errors. Had to cache clean again, every time I added a material component. Start editing project. Save files, nothing happens. No reload. Nothing. Have to Ctrl+C and do ng serve -o again.

20 minutes and I gave up. Uninstall @angular/cli. Lots and lots of errors when uninstalling. Doesn't uninstall. Have to manually remove @angular directory.

Installed Angular 8, back to normal working.
