Speaking as an artist, I have a few ideas about what I download/use and it
is based on what I must do. I have 3 basic modes of work.

If I am working for someone and must get it done then I want something
stable and bug free with no surprises.
Stable, for me this is often the second edition of the release or at least
one that has been out for a few weeks and is proven to work.

Bleeding Edge, release candidate or new releases.
If I am playing with my own stuff then I am happy to use something that
might have a bug or too but is mostly worry free and has all the cool new

Testing release or dailys.
If I am testing or wanting to play with the newest features, even seeing
before all the normals, a sneak preview, then I would be ok with lots of
bugs and finding out how to reproduce them.
