To play with, definitely. For production use, I'll have to let you
make your own judgements. I've been using it on my laptop since July.

At the moment, there's only one bug which I'm very concerned about,
being worked here:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/330824

But a number of community distro's will be supporting it within the
next month or two. So it's definitely getting there. As we increase
the user base, we'll turn up more of the harder-to-reproduce bugs, but
hopefully we'll get them fixed quickly.
