It would be interesting to see how many people are using
FreeBSD-current as a "work" machine, if you mean "work" to be a
production machine doing actual server work.  A lot of times, -current
has been pretty stable for me, and I avoided a lot of "make world" and
stability problems by following what's going on in this mailing list. 
I've only had a couple problems over the past 3 1/2 years with
stability in FreeBSD-current, starting with 3.0-current.  Granted,
it's not generally recommended to use -current boxes as your main
machine, but if you're careful, it's doable.

I say FreeBSD-current makes a pretty decent production machine if the
admin is smart enough to follow the mailing list and is knowledegeable
enough to recognize the pitfalls of running such a beast.  All others
should be running 4.0-release or -stable, of course.
