Didn't really mean to install Dapper, but now I have it. Should I keep it?

Ubuntu Users,

While I was having trouble installing drivers for my video card on a new 
install of Ubuntu, someone suggested that the new Dapper release my have 
the proper support for my hardware.

Since it was a new machine, and no data was at risk or anything, I 
thought I'd go for it.

It turned out later that my video card was not working for entirely 
different reasons.

So now I have the Dapper Drake version of Ubuntu on my computer, and it 
seems to work fine.

But, I do understand that this is an alpha release. And although the 
final release is supposed to be out soon, I'm wondering if it's safe 
enough to just leave Dapper on and upgrade when it becomes final.

Is there any reason I should be concerned about running Dapper as is for 
the time being?
