No, after you install a Release version (for exemple you burn a ISO and
install FreeBSD 6.2) you can

Make classics update to fix security problem but you don't want new
features (typicaly on a sever)

        --> You use RELENG_6_2

You want use Stable version. That's mean some new features, but not big
difference (like kernel difference) etc... (typicaly you home-pc if you're
some power-user and you like have new version every day ;-)) )

        --> You use RELENG_6

if you want participate (event just like for make test and make report) you
can use HEAD.

I'm never use -current not because the "usability" (I don't known...I never
use it), but because all my computer need to be run perfectly (lots of
server etc.)

I can say the with STABLE (RELENG_6 actually) during 5 years the're one
time it's don't work (pb with nic) but one day later after a new cycle
(cvsup build-world etc.) everthing work fine.
