    What in your opinion are the greatest risks going in?

    Zero risk. I haven't faced any issues on my lumia 920 and 520. I am enrolled in dev preview program since GDR3 was announced. There are many users having issues with new OS , but it's still a preview not the final build.

    Same as the risks are when you do any update.

    I would disagree that there are 'Zero Risks', which, btw you contradict in the very next sentence.

    If you consider, possibly not being able to use Wi-Fi (if you do, you risk the power button bug), there are some having serious battery drain issues, with various other instability issues all noted in this forum.

    If you're not using a Nokia device, you can't go back to 8.0 if you don't like it, or have a more serious bug. That is a definite risk that needs to be acknowledged.

    Will the update succeed, likely yes, just know that its not perfect (but very stable), as any preview software often is...go in with your eyes wide open, and you should be pleased overall.

    .
    I should have been more clear there , I didn't have any risk (zero risk ) , and all my other mates who are using dev preview program in my collage ( I made them switch to wp 8 and now to wp8.1 ) are enjoying it.

    There is no risk to matter much as u will get future update which will have fixes if any in developers preview.

    You will get a terrible music app, but that is about the only negative, if it is not a big deal to you.
