-CURRENT is for developers or users who want to contribute in
the development process of FreeBSD. And as Noberto said, there
is a lot of debugging info enabled, which make debugging
possible, but hurt performance greatly.

No worries, just download and install 6.2-RELEASE.

I'd love to but some of my hardware is not supported by 6.2.
Audio chipset Sigmatel 9221 is not supported.
My SATA controller had an issue on 6.2 (I wrote about that on the
and in the end I was advised to try -CURRENT. This is whar I did and
was happy for a while. Sound and HDD are working perfectly, and
performance is OK even with the debugging options enabled in kernel.
But now I am left without OpenOffice (yes, there is another current
thread here). I Guess it's time to switch to Google Docs for a while,
until 7-RELEASE is out.. ;-)

Thanks for comments.


or a snapshot of 6-STABLE, which is updated
in a slow pace, for fixes or security holes.


Releases are considered to be the most stable.
Install 6.2-RELEASE and if you feel like updating
you can use freebsd-update.

Keep in mind that all these new, old, released
or other, are relative to the operating system
itself and not the third party programs(packages,
ports) you'll be using(GNOME, firefox, etc). Ports
are not branched and same versions are used in
all branches... So, running a supported release
does not mean, that you have to run legacy packages.
