Check for issues with your system
http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/natty/beta#Known%20issues

This morning I checked and did not find issues with mine, so I installed, and it works.

Unity is slow showing all installed applications and Firefox has crashed 1 time so far, on opening a PDF.

Also I miss not being able to switch off desktop effects. The tab is gone at "Appearance".

All the rest is OK. New shiny kernel, and the concepts introduced by Unity (when comparing with Gnome 2, at least).

...omg I just discovered tiling :_)
