AFAIK ULE sheduler is unstable and unmaintained. I had stability (and also performance) problems with it on FreeBSD 5.4. My friend told me that problems weren't solved in FreeBSD 6.x. I wonder why they decided to use it.

You have point, but it is perfect for desktop usage:

Without proper testing we'd never know how good it is. Hope we can help FreeBSD development in desktop area.
