At this point, unless you have some critical application that needs the proven stability of 4.x, I don't see a good reason for a new user to start there. Given that you want it for learning, I would say the choice is between 5.2.1 and waiting for 5.3 (which will be a full production release) in a few weeks. If you plan to use FreeBSD as your main desktop OS you might want to wait for 5.3, otherwise the upgrade from 5.2.1 to 5.3 shouldn't be too hard, and it's part of the learning process. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
