Would you recommend installing 8.1RC2?

Hi all,

I'm brand new to FreeBSD. I've got 8.0-RELEASE up and running in my main 
workstation and I'm quite happy with it. Great job & congratulations.

I'm eager to try out 8.1, and I was thinking of trying it out on my 
laptop for my daily work (I'm currently running OpenSolaris 2009.06).

My question is: if I install 8.1 RC2 would it be very difficult to 
upgrade it to 8.1-RELEASE afterwards? Would you recommend installing 
8.1-RC2 right now or would you wait until 8.1-RELEASE is out within a 
few days?

Thanks in advance,
