So you would not recommend 8 (as RC1 at the state of the moment)
for commercial use. Regarding your explaination, I do understand
this. It's often mentioned that x.0 releases aren't "that good".

But allow me a follow-up question: Is 8.0-RC1 already recommendable
for a home desktop, or would 7.2 be the version of choice? I'm
asking this because of the many improvements especially the USB
subsystem has gotten in 8 which would be important for the "plug
and play experience" for USB devices...
