Will test it out and post back my thoughts later. In the mean time it's being discussed in depth here:

I've been trying this out for the last day or so and I can that it's pretty good. The only slight worry I have relates to memory leaks in that that it's a big improvement on earlier builds, but still not as stable as OS5.
I'm seeing around 20MB memory loss througout the day, starting at 50MB down to 30 or so.

Not that I know of. I use BB Boss too. Then I use BBSAK to strip out individual files. My normal routine (although not everyone agrees) is to wipe the blackberry via the security option on the device (I dont wipe the memory card). This takes about 10mins. Then I wipe via BBSAK or BB Boss. See the pic to see what I remove via BB Boss. I then remove the video start up files and silly pics (Media OTA or something, it's over 4mbs in size) using BBSAK. After that I user maxmem from berrycoder.com to remove stuff and finally reboot about 3 times with 1 minute breaks before putting batter back in. And finally start installing my apps:

Repligo pdf reader
Leaving me with about 109mbs free

I took the plunge and upgrade to OS6 on my 9700....very straightforward.
Definitely OS6 would benefit from more RAM (a la 9780) but it runs perfectly well and I've had no issues at all. Yes there is a small, very small memory leak but I've found that just by closing all apps that I don't need running in the background when I'm done with them effectively stops any sizeable leak.
OS6 is very slick indeed, navigation is easy and the upgraded browser is very impressive. The ability to get at settings like wifi, bluetooth, alarm etc right from the homescreen is really really useful.
Now if o2 would just start reducing their handset prices I might consider upgrading...but I can only imagine that 9780 vs 9700 with OS6 is not a huge difference...

Hi knowledgeable people!
Haven't posted in a while but last night I upgraded my 9700 with the new OS6.
I LOVE it! However, I have one major problem. The internet browser. It's not working properly?
I click on the icon, and it brings up the "Start Page" which lists all the bookmarks and history.
If I click on a bookmark, it starts loading up, does it about 75% of the way, and then it flicks back to the "Start Page" again. If I type in an address manually, it does the same thing - loads it partially, then flicks back to the "Start Page".
I've just done a battery pull and it's working now - but this happened again last night and I had to do a battery pull then too. What's going wrong? I don't particularly wanna do a battery pull every time I want to go on the web browser!

Thanks cookie for your help on this - as always, you're very helpful!
I have a bit of a prob though - I think this was related to it but the closing unexpectedly isn't happening anymore. Instead I get "page too big to load so closing browser" messages. I have to delete browser history etc and then I can open up the page.
OS6 seems to have taken loads of my memory - I've deleted lots of apps, there's only English installed. I'm wondering do I need to buy a memory card or something? Browsing takes up a load of space, I think I only had 30mb left after the install and when I browse, then it goes way down so I keep getting the error msgs.
Maybe I should go back to OS5, the 9700 just doesn't seem to be able to cope with OS6
