Well, this is not a strong opinion, but I'd prefer a release with 3.7
over 3.8-rc[23]. My reasoning is that the 3.7 kernel must be more
stable because it *is* released, and the 3.8 kernel is not (it's just
an early release candidate).

But if you're making an aboriginal *release candidate*, using some
3.8-rcX is totally fine (IMO).
