There is a grwoing body of thought that _most_ people are better off not converting. But for new money, if you can't put it in a deductible IRA, should go into a Roth.
There should be much more in-depth papers & articles on this topic before the year is up. People are finding that, once looked at closely, the "obvious" answer isn't quite as obvious as they first thought.

Remember, you can choose only among the options available to you. Pick whichever alternative is best. For new contributions, those options are a) regular IRA, or b) Roth IRA.

The decision to convert an old IRA to a Roth is a separate decision.

Regards,
Ray
