If your server/s are running solid, there is zero reason to upgrade to a
beta. Don't tamper with something that's working flawlessly.

Only reason for me to upgrade is newer versions of Apache, PHP and
I could use some of the features in PHP5. But not right now.
I'll wait six months for the suckers... err users, to iron out the
distro bugs, then I might consider it.
