That's a question that only you can answer.
Will there ever be a time when The FreeBSD Project offically recommends
5.x for production use? Almost certainly yes - just not yet. Each
sysadmin has to make his own decision about when he wants to upgrade.
Some might have no problems with 5.x as it stands and want to upgrade
immediately to make use of new functionality - other may want to wait
This isn't a one-size-fits-all question.
