For the best experience (not to mention several times more content in the form of mods) you should really be using 1.8, anyways.
The lag issues in 1.9 are so much less than in 1.8. You have more options to optimize your rendering rates. If you want things like Mo'Creatures and other mods, yes stick with 1.8. But if you want vanilla with MUCH less lag check out the 1.9 pre-releases.

If you hit esc it skips it..I hit it on accident because someone mentioned hearing talking robots, but i heard no audio..i was going to check if it was turned off in my settings... There definitely needs to be some epic music with that XD
