Upgraded to FreeBSD 6.x

Last week I moved to RELENG_6, the next major release of the FreeBSD operating system scheduled for release “real soon now” (TM). The engineering team continues to amaze me – not a single major regression with the upgrade which was done entirely from sources. Everything just continues to work.

Imagine upgrading major Linux distro versions!!!! There will only be time to pick up the broken pieces off the floor. Shudder!!!
