I'd let 7.0 "age" a bit if you are happy with your current set-up.
While 7.0 has some nice new features, I'm waiting at home until kernel
2.4.0 is official.  Same comment for 6.2.  Although, if I were
currently going to load up a new machine, I'd definitely use 6.2
rather than 6.1; mainly because the installation is much easier.
