I had been asking myself the same question, and chose to start working 
in 2.5. While it still has a few issues (which should be cleared soon, 
I think) it also has many, many bug fixes which are in place now. Be 
prepared for a few odd things, but generally, I'm not regretting it, 
I'm finding it productive, and overall just nice to work in.

On the other side of things, if you aren't using an archiving system to 
save versions of your files, I'd especially suggest it while working in 
*any* beta.
