 Re: FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE Upgrade?
Author: halber_mensch

There's quite more than 'a few' bug fixes, and that's probably reason enough to move forward if you can. Personally, I have been running -CURRENT on my box at home to take advantage of the cutting edge atheros support. Now that it is available in 6.0-RELEASE and 6-STABLE, I will probably start tracking STABLE. The bottom line is that bug fixes = stability and performance gains. If this is less important to you than having the machine running, then don't upgrade. There are plenty of people and organizations still running FreeBSD 2.2.8, 3.4, or 4.11 for this very reason.
