I've used Flex 3 since the first public beta and I feel it's a great update to an already good product. The transition for users of Flex 2 should be seamless. This may be obvious to outsiders as this is how things is supposed to be. Me, I'm just really happy that I can open any of my Flex Builder 2 applications in Flex Builder 3 without any hiccups. Coming from a Flash background, I'm used to Macromedia/Adobe changing the component structure with every single version of the product, rendering old code useless in a more recent version of the Flash IDE.
