Another for the record ...
I upgraded my production box from 5.3 to 6.2BETA2 without incident as
well. I was surprised that all my services started properly on the first
boot (postfix; cyrus imap, apache22, postgres, mongrel(ruby on rails),
and various others..)
After the upgrade, rebuilding some of my ports improved the performance
of my ruby on rails apps by a lot. I'm not sure if I am benefiting from
improved SMP code compared to 5.3 or if it was due to something unrelated
in the ports tree.
This was on an older SMP Pentium 3 system which doesn't have any devices
using the em driver and so far the system has been rock solid.
