I'd recommend installing 10.2. If you're daring, then you can cautiously upgrade to -current. Really read the current-changelog, as it's not guaranteed to be working at any one point in time.

Aw, c,mon -- you only live once, go for it!

Some interesting new things in -current right now. And if you want a nice, easy way to do it, try this script. Of course, you'll have to have a working Linux distro to use rsync, I guess. You can set that script to make CD and/or DVD iso images, change mirrors to get one that works good for your location, etc.

Welcome back to Slack!!

Yeah, I agree with Chinaman. If it's just to mess with, go with current or you'll miss all the phun

It depends on which you want more: stability or the latest/greatest. For the former, go with v10.2 but if it's the latter go with current

Either way, have fun!

or if you are so patient, wait until Slack 11 is released
