I'd go with -current from CVS. The improvements over 2.8-stable are huge,
especially for server usage. The improvements regarding disk access
(reliable softupdates, new dirpref code) are giving a big performance
increase, and the stability is great.
If you have any boxens around running no mission critical stuff its a very
good time to let them run 2.9-beta (aka -current). Don't forget to send
dmesg from GENERIC kernel to dmesg_(_at_)_openbsd_(_dot_)_org and report your experiences,
this is important for 2.9-releases quality.
I'm running my personal notebook and our compile server under -current with
