FWIW, on a test workstation, I'm finding noticeable (however, just
subjective) performance improvement under 6.x.  Even little things--the
keyboard seems faster, building things seems faster, everything seems
faster.  So far, up for a few days without problems.

However, I repeat, my impression is subjective--I'd like to try it on a
more heavily loaded server, but of course, my bosses might frown on
putting a BETA on them.  :)

 Buffy: What do you want?
Angel: The same thing you do. 
Buffy: Okay. What do I want? 
Angel: To kill 'em. To kill 'em all. 
Buffy: Sorry, that's incorrect. But, you do get this watch and a 
year's supply of turtle wax. What I want is to be left alone.
