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).
