I did for a while, then switched back, then the switch disappeared. I like the look but I hate the setup.

Gotchya, thanks, I guess I'll hold off switching until they work out the bugs

Not just no, H**L NO!

While Eclipse has some good points, giving the devil his due, it has LOTS more bad to down right worse points. It is impossible to manage a gallery of any size. And the so called endless scroll guarantees that any works in the bottom or middle of your gallery will never be seen again.

They're overdue for another Beta release. But so far they've mainly been concentrating on repainting the Titanic's walls and arranging the deck chairs. (making galleries look pretty vs actually addressing fundamental system operations)

Information I got about there plans for Core was also less than an overwhelming endorsement.  

The more I look at the Eclipse, the more I'm convinced they would be better off starting over. This is like putting a VW bug engine in a Ferrari body. It might look cool, but doesn't run very well. There are some aspects that hold promise. And a lot more that show too much overworking or attempts to be "trendy".

Yeah I can see what you mean. Hopefully they can get it all sorted out. I wouldn't mind a makeover, but not at the expense of the site running properly.

How do you even switch to eclipse? Is it just for subscribers?

It depends on how long you've had your account. More recent accounts are stuck with Eclipse mode
