How about July 7?
Would be perfect to release FreeBSD 7.0 on 2007-07-07. ;-)
Just kidding, of course ... I'm aware that that would be
too early, unfortunately. It's better take more time for
testing and shaking out the bugs.
Personally I think that 7.0 will be a huge success. People
will love things like gjournal, ZFS, the improvements in
the TCP and threading areas etc. It's a pity that dtrace
doesn't seem to make it into the release, though.
