Same as you mate, Ive used it since the day it came out, never had a problem with it. Ive also not heard of any problems with it either.

I think whay Mayaniac means is dont use it as a main modeling tool as if you move something in the smooth mesh preview you have to move it quite a bit and when you go to the base its distorted, but as long as you make a decent underlying mesh and use it for small tweeks (smoothing areas etc ) and as a mesh preview there no problem, which is common sense to someone who has used maya for a bit.
