How well does Unity work?

Hey guys,

is anyone of you using Unity on your Surface Pro? I've heard it doesn't work very well, meaning that the pen doesn't work (at all?) and touch barely works (whatever that means). Would be nice to get some feedback and how well the application scales. Still 1 week till the Surface Pro is released here and it'd be kinda weird to buy it, then find out that Unity doesn't work that well.

Thanks!

Unity (3.5.7f6) itself works perfectly, but I don't use the touch or pen stuff with it. I use a wireless trackball (logitech) in order to get around.

ok i found my answer... the pen is not acting like a mouse and the touch is not working in the editor of 4.2 right now... i'm sure they will fixe it soon...
so if you got a mouse its work on surface pro

If you double-tap (touch) the menu items, they will work, too. Haven't tried it with the pen, yet. Other than that, Unity 4.2 works splendid, though.
