Koroksan,
I use a Zero all day long. Right now, there are like five 'mature' ROM options to try. Each one has little bugs, but in my opinion nothing that renders the phone unuseable. For me, stability and battery behaviour is a must, so the best one right now is SR1.01 (Stock ROM). Totally stable and, in my opinion and for my user behaviour, with no critical bugs.

This said, you must know that there are recurrent, cross-ROMs problems with: the compass, the sound volume of tones and notifications, the camera, and the battery life. The importance of those bugs, as has been long discussed in the forums, depends largely on the user's perception. But I'm pretty sure that with the actual rate of debugging and ROM cooking, all the bugs will eventually get squashed in maybe a couple of months (if GP doesn't market a new phone that will divert efforts, that is).

You should visit this thread (sorry, Spanish)
http://forum.geeksphone.com/index.php?topic=2616.0
where our nice fellow m.prieto has gathered all bugs reported for each ROM. You can ask for clarifications if you feel Google translation is not doing a good work.

tl; dr: Zero has some bugs you can live with, and provides a great way of learning

Regards,
g.

First of all welcome aboard. If your Spanish is limited, you can have a look at this [http://forum.geeksphone.com/index.php?topic=2761.0] post, which has the same information in english.
