Funny how my vote didn't get accepted and I can't vote anymore. ^

May I suggest google forms? People would be able to select multiple choices then.

nightly; I feel bad about it, but I just can't live without all the shinny stuff.

same :) and so far the votes split almost 50/50 between nightly and stable.

but if nobody uses it, it breaks the idea of beta version. what is sense of its existence?

Beta is worst of both worlds. You don't get all the features, and yet you don't get the stability neither.

I guess for me it is just hard to keep up with all of the changes in beta. I dont' keep up with the list of new features coming out. So I don't have a sense of the carrot to get into beta. All I worry about then is just instability. That is just IMO.

My take on that: some parts of the language/libraries is marked as unstable. I use some of the libraries that in turn use those features. Hence I run on nightly.

I just always use nightlies but I use the stable subset
I probably should get my CI to test whether winapi builds on my documented minimum version though
