FWIW, without extraordinary reason, I don't run 'production' machines on
-CURRENT (I think the last time I did so was when I ran a news server on
3.0-CURRENT). However, my workstation runs -CURRENT, and my dialup router
does as well (mainly to make it easier to update), my laptop... come to
think of it, almost all my of personal machines run -CURRENT, except for
one that runs 2.1-STABLE (386SX. 4 MB RAM. 80 meg disk. Last benchmark:
13 days for a buildworld. Don't think I'll update it any time soon).
