More features and the occasional speed boost :) I noticed a nice bit of a
performance dif between 4.4 and 4.7. I found the extra features, stability, and
ect to be nice. A little after that I upgraded hardware, older hardware started
having very limited expandability,  and started tracking stable and have
absolutly loved it. I have really noticed a big dif with some of the changes
that have been made since 4.7.

I have found upgrade hardware makes me happy too :)   I personally would love to
have a box with a few gigs of ram to use as a cache. More HDD space is all ways
useful to me. Yeah, cd/dvd works for back up, but it is annoying for easy to
access archival purposes. Better networking is nice to. I personally want move
parts of my system to a mesh topology using firewire400.
