OK, having tried it. Upgrade from Gutsy worked apart from, ironically, 
update-manager which refused to install (worked after completely 
removing it and related packages, and reinstalled).

I've only had a quick play; basic web browsing, watching a film 
remotely, etc.


Fan seems to be on constantly.
Battery level meter seems borked (updated on startup but hasn't updated 
Seems to be a disk read every couple of seconds then a clunk as disk 
head parks. I don't like it.
Can't use FTP in Nautilus (asks for password then errors something about 
the reply).

OTOH, I like all the little graphical changes and that background looks 
fantastic. It feels a little faster generally, apart from booting, and 
especially FF3.

I'm looking forward to the RC. :)
