I'm deploying FreeBSD 7 on my webservers, because they are
loadbalanced. But I will not deploy ver. 7 on my db-server until I get
to ver. 7.1. Other than that ver. 7 is very stable and I have not had
any reboots (using ufs as fs).

So if the server is very critical I would stay on the 6.x release-branch.


When lenity and cruelty play for a kingdom,
the gentlest gamester is the soonest winner.
