Is 2.3 Gingerbread now a SAFE OS for EVO 4G?

My EVO is still running 2.2 Froyo. Thinking about updating my OS to 2.3 but not sure if it's still buggy. Could someone please confirm the bug issue or provide latest experience with 2.3 ?

Thanks!!!

Updating to 2.3 was the worst mistake and made my phone a nightmare. Worst decision I made.

personallly the only bugs i randomly see are the sense reload issue and once i had the internal memory leak. thats about it. others have it more often than i do. if i remember right those where the main 2 that were happening. and with any update youre going to get bugs. and with that maintenance releases to fix said bugs...and with THAT not all bugs will be fixed.

hit and miss *shrug*

Whatever you do, DO NOT UPDATE IT.  Android 2.3 has completely screwed my phone, HTC Sense resetting 15 odd times a day.  Stay on 2.2.

Sprint know about the issues with that 'update', as do HTC.  THEY HAVE DONE NOTHING IN 7 MONTHS TO FIX IT.

Im glad i didnt update. I will never then as i suspected that it would be a wrong move for me. Froyo is good enough for me. I've added a lot of apps for better UI so I think it's good enough. Plus, I've never had any issues with froyo.   No reason for me to update to GB anyway.  Thanks all for the feedback...
