Tbh I've been running it the last few days trying different installs, at 
the moment the only "bug" i see (which isn't really a bug, more erm.. an 
annoyance) is on the install (from the "install Ubuntu gnome"), you have 
no wallpaper, a brown unsightly top bar and crappy gnome icons, on the 
"Try Gnome" you have no wallpaper some icons are missing (that comes 
down to using the gnome icon theme I think though) and I did have some 
tearing at first on the radeon driver, but have been unable to reproduce 
it after four or five separate installs (so I came to the conclusion 
that either it has been fixed, or my system was being quirky). The 
actual system once installed with the defaults is actually quite solid.

I think the only work that it needs is polish on the things I've already 
stated and maybe the "GTK2" themes (it seems to use a different theme, 
maybe we should look at what fedora does as the one they have in GTK2 
apps matches perfectly.

Other than that, I will report bugs if I manage to find any.
