Would you mind waiting for the replacement system to be fully tested and
migrated before setting fire to the old one?

There's a scene in the classic comedy Father Ted, where a visitor to the
parochial house starts complaining about the build quality of the
bookshelves, and to prove his point he pulls them to pieces. "Look at
that, it's falling apart!" [1]

Just because something is broken does not mean you are obliged to kick
it over to prove the point.
