5.3 still had a lot of sharp edges (a lot of things were merged into it
just prior to release). But at this point, we're even phasing out 6.x.
Really, I would hope that everyone except people embedding FreeBSD into
their products (and thus have long development cycles) would be on 7.x
by now. It has a much better chance of running on modern hardware.
