I've been running Karmic since about Alpha 5 and had very few problems. The
RC (on the 3 machines I'm running anyway) seems to be quite stable. The
performance improvements are quite startling, especially the boot time on
my laptop. 

If you have found some problems, make sure you report bugs! The next
release is an LTS so should be by far more stable on release.
