For what it's worth, I've (so far) had 50% luck with 7.1.  My home server runs nothing special, mostly development stuff and the occasional X session.  I attempted to upgrade to 7.1 from 6.3-STABLE yesterday, and to make a long story short, am now running 6.4-RELEASE.  

If you do decide to go with 7.1, I'd test drive it first, before committing that machine to that OS.  So far, I've had no problems with 6.4-* on any of my machines.
