this is for Dag-Erling Smørgrav, I m not sure but for me 7.0 has a lot of
problems had to search to ,make acpi thermal polling actually not poll as
much so I don't get spammed by having my non existent sensor being polled
every 100 seconds. on ##freebsd channel on freenode some do suggest 6.3
since they do not trust a .0 release until a .1 comes out since many of the
bugs do get fixed that maybe a .0 still has. or a 6.x doesn't have as many
bugs as a .0 release since many of them were worked out though out the whole
6.x series.

I myself have used .0 since beta and -current and find no problems with it
except for the acpi thermal spam but fixed that by changing a sysctl switch.
