My Mac is my main computer now. I have never run a macOS beta on it but I have run other beta software programs on the Mac. Even running those betas I barely notice much. If I had another Mac I would probably run macOS beta on one of them. Looking at some of the Mac forums on the internet, macOS betas do run into some bugs that need fixing.
