Has anybody started using Debian Wheezy release?

Hello All,

I had started using Debian 6.0 (Squeeze) few months back and I have become a fan of it. Meanwhile, I am now waiting for its next release i.e. Debian Wheezy and today downloading it's beta release (from here). I hope it will work fine.

However, is there anyone else who has also started using the same? How is your experience so far?

I've been using it for ages, with both Gnome 3 and MATE variants. I have also had the other DEs as well. It is stable and the lighter DEs are quick. My preference is Wheezy with MATE but they are all pretty good.

I've been running Wheezy (GNOME and Xfce) since around September, three different computers. Quite nice.

I had been running it on a desktop machine with Xfce for quite a while up until this past week, but have since switched to Slackware. Everything ran really well.
