Alpha releases are not recommended for those who want a stable machine. Alpha releases are usually for developers to try them, find bugs and take part in development by reporting any bug to that distribution development team.

As the alpha releases come, distributions have software updates and bug fixes. Alpha 2 of Ubuntu 15.04 includes some software updates. But there can be still some bugs to be reported and fixed so try it to contribute to the development.

While these Alpha 2 images have been tested and work, except as noted in the release notes, Ubuntu developers are continuing to improve the Vivid Vervet. In particular, once newer daily images are available, system installation bugs identified in the Alpha 2 installer should be verified against the current daily image before being reported in Launchpad. Using an obsolete image to re-report bugs that have already been fixed wastes your time and the time of developers who are busy trying to make 15.04 the best Ubuntu release yet. Always ensure your system is up to date before reporting bugs.
