Do you have the option to test the new layout yet (in the bottom left corner of your screen when you go on DA)? If so, what do you like about it, what don't you like?

Good and bad, I love the new notifications system, but I don't like the "watch" system, too messy^^

I'm just waiting for the incredibly massive butthurt that will emanate from the general populace the second it comes out.

Once you get it can you change it back?
I don't have it yet.

It has it's good points but it also has its bad points... I like the new drop down menus on the main nav, the pop up display of deviations, and the darker colors ;)

However, I do not like the fact that it's all piled on top of each other without any labels. You have to hover over stuff to even see the title and who it's by, and the group stacks are just stuck in their with everything else unless you "filter" them out... It's annoying to me cause I'm use to the notification center being so organized, but I guess it's not a huge deal. I'm starting to get use to it now that I've been using it for two days :/

Will it go into effect for everyone after it's tested?

They will gradually increase the test group as far as I know!

I have it and I really like it, for the most part. Looks prettier and more streamlined. 

I'm annoyed that there doesn't seem to be an option to remove deviations from the Watch 2.0 page (or at least not a clearly visible one that I've found...) and you have to manually set it to show EVERYONE's art (as well as group submissions) instead of it just doing that by default... Aaaand while I like the drop-down menu for the notifications, I can't use my touchscreen to open it (since it's a hover-over thing) and I don't like that you can't expand the notifications within the thing--you have to navigate to a new page to actually read comments/replies.

I figure dA will work at the finer details later. As of now I rate it 8/10. :^)
