Seeing as I don't think they've opened the Public Beta yet, I suspect anyone using it today is under NDA on it....

I'm pretty sure a NDA is not an issue considering the level of quick look demos being done by reputable tech sites.

The NDA would state things regarding the OS itself, but I think it's fine to talk about software running onder the new OS. In fact; it would help make software better upon release, which is good for Apple as well.

Yosemite is compatible with Mavericks. I think will not any problems.

Yosemite looks like a downgrade, just like iOS 7 does.

So far same or improved.
If you have MBPr with 2 graphics cards (intel+NVIDIA) you will find that few bugs were actually fixed regarding launching some fullscreen games.

Post #10 specifically mentions what apps won't launch and which are having issues. Apparently Doom 3 has rendering problems.

Some fullscreen games like Defcon had issues launching in fullscreen -- only 1/4 of the game was displayed. You had to manually force OS X not to switch GPUs during launch.
