Default The Android L Preview Factory Image

Now that Google released an Android L Preview Factory Image for the 2012 Nexus 7, has anyone tried it?

How useable is it and what are the main gotchas?

a factory image and an incomplete source drop are not the same! you mixed something up.

Google released some GPL sourcecode which you can't "try out" (neither flash).
Only nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013) have flashable factory images!

Please use the Q&A section for Questions like these next time to keep the general section clean.

The original thread for this is right next to this one on xda. It's titled [ROM][5.0.0][The unnamed Android L SDK port][for MultiROM][01/07/14][v4] and it only works with MultiROM. (+makes it impossible to install some apps, but works well otherwise)
Lazy "journalism."

Ahh Thanks! Must have missed it in the Thread section.. Sorry for that!
But the article never mentioned multi rom so that's why
