The strength of standard QM is that

-- it can safely ignore all irrelevant variables,

-- it can transform to arbitrary symplectic coordinate systems in phase space,

-- it can work on arbitrary Lie groups adapted to the problem,

without leaving the framework of the theory.

BM has no such option, hence is strictly inferior to the standard view.

Thus it is fully justified that the main stream ignores BM.

The presentation ''Not even wrong. Why does nobody like pilot-wave theory?'' at

http://www.tcm.phy.cam.ac.uk/~mdt26/...ures/bohm7.pdf diagnoses the disease but only has a historical view rather than an answer to that question. The real answer is that the need for BM is marginal compared to the need for QM. BM subtracts from QM too much without giving anything relevant in return.

Though through lip service it encompasses all of QM, in practice it excludes many systems of practical interest because they are not formulated with enough pointer degrees of freedom (and often cannot be

formulated with few enough pointer degrees of freedom to be tractable by BM means). Simulating quantum computing via BM would be a nightmare.
