I have to wonder, this sounds like a great suggestion, I'd think to word 
it stronger.  The snapshots aren't release versions, and I don't think 
they're a good thing to use as one's first exposure to FreeBSD, and most 
especially not for a machine that is going to be a server.  Shouldn't it 
be emphasized a little that these are pre-release snapshots, not in any 
way guaranteed bug-free?
