FreeBSD 6.0BETA5

I'm running FBSD 6.0BETA5 and it rocks! It seems much more stable than 5.x and a bit faster as well (of course, I have debugging turned off for obvious reasons). It is the best desktop OS (other than Mac's OSX) that I've found and I've tried almost everything. Speed, reliability and ease of use makes it my desktop OS of choice.
