[nycbug-talk] New Server - IDE or SATA RAID?, 6.x or 7.x? (fwd)

Looking to launch a new server here shortly.  I've had bad experience with SATA 
and FreeBSD in the past - primarily with some errors in dmesg that only seemed 
resolved when I swapped in a SATA raid controller (even though these were 
individual drives and not raid!).

Of course, this setup would be RAID 1 - but I'm wondering what the best way to 
go would be - SATA or IDE.

What are all of your experiences?

Also, as far as OS choice, are people moving to 7.x now for production boxes, 
or still sticking with the 6.x branch?
