I just upgraded to the beta on a non-production desktop machine (w/ nvidia, the way it's mean to be run).

I'll go on the record to say I actually like the new unity desktop shell. Seems more mature and functional than gnome shell, while being a "conservative" for old gnome2 users.

Unity used to suck quite badly, but now it's really coming to its own.
