If that were true, this thread wouldn't exist. :P

Since you've inadvertantly brought this up, it should be noted that
beginning with the release of 11.0 the support model for FreeBSD
releases is changing.[1] Based on the new support model 10.1 will be
considered as out-of-date in a couple years as 4.1 is considered now. So
waiting another half-year to "[install something] once and be done with
it" probably isn't a real solution. It's not necessarily a bad idea, but
10.3 will continue to be supported long enough for OP to get used to the
new system structure and utilities, and prepare for an upgrade to 11.x.
