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.
