I have just upgraded two virtual machines running on ESXi. They are i386
with 256Mb of RAM and one CPU, with just a few ports installed (sudo and
screen and dependencies). They don't do much job (low-traffic authoritative
nameservers for a dozen of domains). I upgraded by freebsd-update. I don't
see any problems so far. Also my laptop is 9-STABLE amd64 (currently at
r255867) and I do not have any more problems than usual (the unfortunate
AR9285 wifi adapter).
