I guess I should be specific and say that I've had very positive
experiences of it over the past week in Feisty (7.04 beta) but prior to
that I tried to use it in edgy and it was a shambles.  It seems to have
improved substantially now though.  Nice clean support for WPA, lets you
pick which wifi network from those available and the wired connection (if
present).  It's very laptop/desktop oriented, but that's what it's for,
servers should probably be using /etc/network/interfaces.
