Hindsight is 20-20, my friend.  F12 had its early teething issues, too.
You never know what's going to happen and I don't think anyone can blame
you for running a non-beta on things you depend on.

My main desktop is still F10 right now, partly because I didn't trust
F11 until about three months ago and partly because, well, I was just
too damned lazy to update it. That will change Friday.  My primary
desktop goes F11 and my labrat and hamster machines go F12Beta.
