We don't have any statistics :-). Krita 2.0 is definitely still very 
experimental. There are lots of new features, but some other features haven't 
made the cut yet, and I would hesitate recommending 2.0 to anyone who isn't 
interested in experiments and reporting results to us.

Basically, it's what we tried to make clear in the release message: 2.0 is a 
platform for people to build on and not a stable release for users. We asked 
all distributions to be conservative with packaging 2.0 and not replace 1.6 
with 2.0 unconditionally yet.
