I don't think it's a good idea to let what you see on a mailing list be
your end all be all of what you use... This isn't an insult or anything,
but I've seen some pretty damn stupid people who try to install stuff
into Swap.... And that isn't even close to the stupidest thing I've ever
seen on a list. Trust me, the best way to figure out of you personally
would benefit from upgrading, is doing it yourself.

I use and read these lists, and I admit, sometimes, it's for
entertainment value, but again, I've also received more than my share of
help from people who DO know WTF they're doing.

It doesn't cost you more than a CD or DVD, so why not just download 9
and try it out? I have every version of FreeBSD I've ever downloaded, or
paid for, starting with 4.0 back in 2000 or so, and I am now running 9.0
on my main FreeBSD machine, and PC-BSD 8.2 on a Desktop, and PC-BSD 9 on
my Laptop. I've had NO issues with any of them.

So for whatever it's worth to you; I am using FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE, and I
like it.
