ArcGIS 9.3 just arrived on my desk! Should I install it or wait a week and see what happens? One half of me wants to be an "early adopter", the other half doesn't want to be a guinea pig. Then there are the time-loss issues and the inevitable install bugs that will take more time. Torn, but excited!
I've been burned hard by early adoption before with Arc, so I usually wait about 6 months...
Looks like there are some cool improvements, but nothing that would completely revamp my workflows... that I know of now at least.

Also, I've loaded the patch for exporting GeoPDFs from 9.3, and it works pretty nice. You definitely don't want to load in too many attributes, but it is a good feature, along with being able to get the lat-long coords from anywhere in your pdf map. The GeoPDF stuff only works with Acrobat/Reader v.9, though.

For instance, IE6 can't even be used in our web application, because it locks up the browser after a few seconds. It is a known issue.
There are various bugs with GIS Server when using multiple map services in a web application, as well.
So far, I am disappointed with the usability of the Server 9.3 release. There is no way it should have been released in this state.
