  I can say about free SGE 5.3 version we are using. By my opinion,
the pluses, in particular, are (in addition to answers to your questions) simple
installation, good documentation, good graphical interface for administrator,
some Globus features (we don't use them currently, but paln to
use in the future).

  By my opinion, yes. The main weak point is, IMHO, not
" too advanced" sheduler. In particular, in OpenPBS I may
implement MAUI source. 
> Stable?
  Yes, it was one of the main reasons of our choice of SGE in comparison
