  In general it never pays to be initial user of any linux release.  (Or 
any new hardware or software product.)  Things will be broken here, and 
there.  After 1-2 weeks the big issues will be fixed, and you should be 
fine if you update right after the install.  On the other hand if things 
aren't working well for you right now what have you got to lose?

PS- Yes I'm downloading the new release tomorrow, but I enjoy debugging
