I have used it, briefly, on desktops. And Unity 8 still has a way to go for desktop use, which is probably why it's still considered a tech preview. Unity 8 on Mir is a lot better than it was a year ago, but does need some polish on the desktop.

However, on mobile devices Unity 8 is quite good. It tends to be smooth and stable and I'd definitely recommend it for phones/tablets.
