Found beta-2 so tried the latest.
For the most part no problems, other than at this early stage, wireless doesn't seem to install fully. Wifi.tcz and wireless tools actually install, but no icon. From the cli, iwlist seems gone. My netgear wg111/V3 dongle is supported natively and needs no firmware.
Ate my own dog food and made sure that I could unzip and dd an image to a new card from a previous install on my stable pi, ver 8.1.5. No problems there!
I think the repo is busy since the Fifth browser will fail to install, but having a blast with other programs.
