Why upgrade?  In my case it was that performance would be so much better 
under 7 than under 6.X.  It is inevitable that systems need to be upgraded 
as versions become EOL (end of life and no longer supported) or 
replaced.  In my case I run FreeBSD on servers which have a much longer 
life than client desktops or laptops.

For those that have been doing FreeBSD a while, as I have since 1.X.  Each 
upgrade has its problems.  It just takes some patience and ingenuity to 
work around them.  These mailing lists with the large community help a 
great deal.
