I have been running it since the late Alpha stage and it is a very impressive release. I installed one of the late betas on a friends system and it automatically picked up and installed the correct driver for his Brother laser printer as well as setting his video to the default resolution. A trip to the settings, turning on the 3D for his ATI card and rebooting were all that was needed to get that working.

If you have the room I would reccommend trying it. While it is not my main OS I still find it to be a very good release. (I have a fondness for PC-BSD on my Intel machine). :-)
