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.

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"
