Thanks for mentioning me (grabbed my attention ;)).

I've been running the beta for well over a year and I would consider it extremely stable. Nothing game-breaking to report - it's been working solid and stable for me.
Being beta program makes it prone to errors/instability and it could even (theoretically) destroy your Windows. But that is far too extreme - FS seems to be on the safe side, releasing stable enough builds. I would recommend... but be sure to have failsafe/backups in case something would happen. Again, over a year - all good, no BOSDs or similar.
