i would stick with -STABLE for a while yet. the last time i had 5.0 on a
machine (roughly 5 weeks ago) i didn't even have a working mozilla, and
some other applications would fail in odd ways. i'd also have random
kernel panics if i ran anything that'd use kernel calls for updating
(gkrellm, systat, etc) on a frequent basis.

other than those issues, it was generally not to bad.
