10.0-CURRENT works pretty good for me, i'm running it on an intel 32
machine and an amd64 machine. i have some servers running 7, i totally
skipped 8 and tried 9 for a couple of months. but i wanted better wireless
hardware support so i started pulling cvs head.

For kicks i'm merging updated gnu and gpl software (that's been frozen
since GPLv3 hit) into 10 src (ie /usr/src/gnu and /usr/src/contrib) just to
see what kind of trouble it will cause.
