I just finishing installing 5.3. I was going to compose an email saying how well
it worked for me. Appending to this thread seems applicable.

I have a 9 year old Dell Inspiron 7500. With 5.1 and 5.2 I had issues with the
ACPI (Intel's gift to the work, I am told) and the ep driver, so I had to drop
back to 4.10

I just reinstalled a 5.2 CD and cvsup'd to RELENG_5. Everything worked like a
charm.  All ACPI errors were handled and even the ep driver worked. 5.3 may or
may not be ready for production servers but it is ready for prime time as a
workstation.  I am not sure where Kris found such ancient hardware to test on,
but thanks. I hope to keep using this thing until 64 bit processors become
