    Using it right now
    Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.

    I couldn't wait and so im running the Final Beta of 14.04. Honestly everything works fine so it may as well be the final release.

    And if you run your normal system updates after April 17 you'll have the final release. There's really no excuse for ordinary users with a couple of years of experience to jump in early.
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.

    Exactly why I jumped in early. Wondering what you mean by "there's no excuse for ordinary users to jump in early"? Do you mean there's no reason for them to, they shouldn't because there's no need, or there's no excuse for them not to jump in early?

    Normally I will wait until at the end of April to download because of the internet traffic congestion. I can wait.

    I generally use University mirrors for speed and to reduce Canonical's bandwidth costs. Yes it seems to me that 14.04 is quite stable these days and it 'feels' faster than 12.04.

    I consider myself to be experienced, but as a rule I would never implement an OS that is in Beta on a production machine. I can't afford downtime or inconsistent behavior that could affect my work.

    On the other hand if it were not linked to my work I might be inclined to jump in early due to impatience.
