Well, just to put my "Me too!" here. I have been following 5.x for as
long as it existed and during all this exercise, I have found it to be
fairly useable at all times. There were some bumps along the road, but
nothing that a careful study of this and other mailing lists would not
have solved. In fact, ever since 5.x branched from 4.0 way back when:-)
it was the only installation of FreeBSD that I had on my workstation.
I wrote my university thesis on this machine, while religiously keeping
up with the latest and greatest -CURRENT source, the box has served as a
dialup and later as an ADSL gateway without problems. Of course,
debugging code has slowed it down at times but that was expected.
Although I do not consider myself a developer/programmer, I always tried
to report problems in a useful way when found. It is just that I did not
have a lot to do on this front:-) (Maybe I am the kind of user who
should start using -CURRENT in greater numbers? OK, I'm here already:-)
This machine is a PII-233 UP, with an Intel 440-LX based mobo and only
IDE peripherals. It is no longer "state of the art" or even close, but,
thanks to FreeBSD, it runs as snappy as ever.

Indeed. It is really refreshing to see that, despite occasional
ramblimngs and otbreaks of flame on the lists, the project really makes
headway, especially looked at from a historical perspective.
Keep up the good work!
