FreeBSD 6.1 is not unsupported - far from it. When 6.1 was released, it
was designated as an "Extended support" branch, and is currently
scheduled to be supported (from a security point of view) after support
for 6.2 is dropped. http://www.freebsd.org/security/
If you're building network applications, it makes perfect sense to go
for 6.1, as that's part of the reason behind the "extended support"
