I understand your request, so I'll just say this:

The 4.X series has proven to be extreemly stable!

The 5.X series has lots of new developments and changes!

4.X will *eventually* cease with 5.X being continued

Now, you decide based upon your requirements AND your hardware support Smilie

Like many other freely available distributions, you have two choices:

The stable branch: 4.10
The development branch: 5.2.1

Since you are asking this question, I'd have to say you should install 4.10 and read the handbook (http://www.freebsd.org). If you have trouble installing 4.10 on your hardware, try 5.2.1.
