Yes, definitely 64-bit.

It looks like -STABLE are daily development/ test builds (?):
I'm looking for stability. I'll try the 9.0-RELEASE:

VirtualBox does seem to be popular. It played with it on Debian Testing

1. Does FreeBSD support encrypted disk partitions (slices)?
2. Does the X server in FreeBSD (?) support Intel HD 2000 integrated
