I've been using it for a while on my main desktop machine --- I upgraded
when it was still in beta. It's not much different from previous
versions of xubuntu. Prior to the upgrade I was using 14.04.

The big change for me was the lack of proprietary AMD graphics drivers
--- I'm forced to use the OSS radeon drivers. Also, gcc defaults to gcc
6, with C++14 as the default dialect for g++.

I've installed it on my laptop too, and everything seems fine there.
