My first installation of FreeBSD was 2.0.5. Since then I have done a clean install for x.0 releases - as a matter of policy (excuse to upgrade hardware, plus it cleans out orphaned files) but not necessity. (Or am I not remembering a red flag day between 2.x and 3.0?) Between .0s, I have successfully upgraded using the method described in the handbook. These days I'm more worried about a port upgrade trashing a config file. Have I had problems? Yes. All of them turned out to be hardware-related or me doing something stupid that broke the process.
