Actually i have read it many time before, but i guess, never paed
attention ;)

anyhow, this:

"There may be some issues with 64-bit cleanliness in some (particularly older) drivers. Generally, drivers that already function 
correctly on other 64-bit platforms should work.
FreeBSD/amd64 is a very young platform on FreeBSD. While the core FreeBSD kernel and base system components are generally fairly 
robust, there are likely to still be rough edges, particularly with third party packages."

scares me. Do you really think it is better than PAE?
