I run -current on four machines (two i386, one alpha, one ultrasparc) here,
and it's quite stable. Of course, I always test a new build of current on a
box which I don't do anything critical on (and can thus reinstall if it
breaks without much hassle) before installing on the others, but I haven't
had any severe problems with current in years, and that was a network driver
bug that was present in the releases as well.
