I ran the Beta 2 on my laptop (well, technically, it's still there) and it wasn't too bad at all. A little slow here and there and programs would still exhibit instability. It's nice to play around with but nothing I'd use full time.
I heard the new build out in the RC tree is actually VERY good. I'm talking better performance than WinXP on a decently specc'd machine (yeah, don't ask me how that's possible, but several people have commented on this) and is many times more stable than the Beta 2 release. I'm going to see if I can give the new build a whirl.
