I've been using Yosemite for a few days now, upgraded through from Mavericks so kept all my files/apps.

I've not had ONE issue, everything just works, and the new spotlight is really really good.

Just me?

After DP2 most of my issues that actually impact my daily use have been fixed. I cant wait to see if DP3 brings more polish and more useful dark theme.

Ya the dark theme is why I will be doing a clean install of 10.10 when the gm comes out. I customized the icons and dock and so much but now they did it all for me.

So I want a clean slate in October

This is the Yosemite forum...

OP: I'm pretty much issue free upgrading from Mavericks to DP 1 and DP 2. I had some slowdowns with DP 1, but everything has been pretty good since then.

I wouldn't say NO issues but not as many as others have seen although I put mine on an old IDE firewire drive so I expected some freezing from the get-go. I think it depends on a lot of factors. How much you use it(main machine/secondary), how you installed it (upgrade/clean) and what programs you are trying to run.
Overall Ive been pretty impressed by the stability however I would not trust it as my main machine. I am very excited to see the following DPs and Betas, I think it will be pretty solid for all by "Public Beta" time if not it will be a PR nightmare

I put Yosemite on my main comp. DP1 was bad (i.e. very unstable), but now in DP2 everything except for Mail is running just fine. Mail constantly crashes when loading it up, so I'm just resorting to iCloud and the Outlook web client until its fixed. It's looking quite stable and good to me and should only get better from here on out (though regressions are certainly possible in future DPs).

It's surprisingly solid for me. Some things could use a bit more polish (Safari has completely frozen on me about twice a day since DP2 was released), but it's working great for me. Running it on both my development and personal machine at this point.

Let's just say I am using DP2 as my main OS.

It's that stable right now. Almost perfect, I would say.

Issues I have seen...

* Chrome crashes. Not a problem, I just switched back to Safari
* Safari sometimes crashes but then immediately reloads
* Handoff/Continuity not yet working

Mail works perfectly. SpamSieve even recently updated for DP2. For those having problems you might want to try AirMail. Use the beta release.

As someone has said, I believe this is ready for Beta. We should be close to seeing the first beta very, very soon.

I've had like 5 straight up crashes since upgrading to the second build. Very annoying.

At first I wasn't seeing any real issues but now I wish i didn't go over my main install.

Facebook crashes and reloads pretty often. Steam overlay doesn’t work (just disabled it as I never use it). Other than that my pretty heavy workflow is uninterrupted (Adobe CC, music production in Logic X).

The only issue I'm having is switching between applications gets a spinning ball for about a second. I think it has something to do with both my iPad and iPhone on iOS8 and continuity/handoff inefficiencies. But honestly, this is the most stable DP I've experienced in a while.

DP2 is working fine for me... I'd say it's only really the UI and some animations that remind me that it's still only a DP.

I currently have it installed on a partition, but will upgrade my main partition probably when the public beta comes out.

I haven't had any major issues with it, i haven't installed much software on it either (except for Office 2011) and running some Apple apps (Pages, works without installing it) from the Mac OS Mavericks installation. Haven't tried any of the other Apple apps though without installation.

The only thing that i am disappointed is that my 2009 late Macbook won't do Continuity. Shame, but hey my iPad air can do it though, so no big loss then. I don't think my Macbook does Airplay either. Oh well. At least it compensates. :)

So far i think it's pretty great. Been stable of rme, then again I haven't done anything drastic to it, except browse the web and check out the default apps and settings and write documents and do some spreadsheets. I did have a major crash last night though the menu bar and dock disappeared, so i had to do a reboot. Apart from that, it runs pretty well on the macbook. :)

I've had issues on all the systems I'm testing on at home:
2013 iMac
2012 iMac
2013 MacBook Air
2012 Retina MacBook Pro
2012 Mac Mini

If all I did was use Safari then I don't come across that many problems but I've had graphical glitches, random freezes, different apps crashing, sometimes typing a specific word would crash an app, multiple displays not turning on after sleep, back to my mac not working, multiple instances of the same computer showing in Finder, Airdrop not working across the Macs and the list can go on and on.

I don't try any of the new features, but all of what was on Mavericks works fine. The only issue I had was with HTML5 videos on YouTube. Switched it back to Flash and it's been fine.
