I was on the inaugural to SYD last year - 25 October 2007.
Didn't enjoy the flight itself that much, I wasn't really into the big circus that it was up there that day. But I love the aircraft, quiet and smooth. Usually I avoid sitting near the back of aircraft because it tends to be a bit more uncomfortable, but I was at the back for that flight and it was still an excellent flying experience. On the whole I thoroughly enjoyed the A380 experience and I'm looking forward to taking it again, though when that will be I've no idea.

I have not flown the A380 as yet but will in April on the return leg from SIN. I have to admit I have seen the A380 almost on a daily basis either arriving when I'm on the way in to work or departing when I'm on my morning break. The thing that really amazes me is just how quiet it is. I'm looking forward to hearing the 787 and A350 to see if the trend toward quiet aircraft has been taken even further.

I haven't yet, and have no plans to. The only flights I have coming up where I might get one is QF 175/176 in November, but I doubt they'll be using the 380 on that route by then. Least I hope not anyway.
