On three machines. Generally positive experience.
Machine 1 - Laptop with Intel graphics - largely problem free.
Machine 2 - Laptop with ATI graphics. I can get compiz with the open source driver - wobbly windows, cube, the lot. Weeeeee!
Machine 3 - Desktop with Nvidia graphics. Bootup is a mess (seems that Plymouth reacts differently depending on your graphics driver), and the latest proprietary nvidia driver causes the whole system to lock up. Or rather it causes my system to lock up - others seem to find the latest driver unproblematic. I suppose it depends on your particular graphics chipset. I'm using the 173 driver atm.
I'm finding firefox a bit stuttery on the nvidia system (posting from there now), but not on the other two, but I haven't come across any showstoppers yet.
The new colour scheme: The new "light" themes have appeared and the big news is that BROWN IS OUT. \o/\o/\o/ Instead you have an interesting combination of orange, purple and a sort of beigy-grey. It looks better than it sounds. Also a see-through purple terminal and, believe me, I don't know how I've managed to cope without a see-through purple terminal all these years. But as it's also see-through with the open source ATI driver, I'm not complaining!
Oh, and window buttons on the left but, considering the howls of rage emanating from Ubuntuforums, this may yet change.
Just to prove I'm not inhaling something, one see-through purple terminal (complete with buttons over there on the left):
