I'm running 10 27" i7 iMacs, each with 4 or 8 gigs of ram, all running CS5 ultimate collection, office and various other utilities/applications. No issue with any of the machines. Some of the creative suite can be a little flakey, but none of the USB connected intuous 2 have any issues, nor external USB harddrives etc. No issues at all. Do you understand that some people are always going to experience issues, and most of these are caused by other software and hardware, rather than the OS, but somehow it's always the OS that gets the focus. WHen thinking "My battery powered mouse hasn't worked so well since the update", your first thought should be "have I checked the batteries recently" rather than screaming "this update broke my mouse".
Yes, there are minor issues which affect some people with certain software/hardware configurations and these are being addressed. That is not "beta" software, it is an inevitable part of OS development that it will constantly need refining and bugs addressed as they are found.
It is not possible to test every configuration, every software combination and every environmental factor - the testing process would last two to three centuries...
