If nothing else, it's nice to see a *nix that you go "I want to run commercial software" and the people behind it go "Let's see what we can do to make it work" instead of having them rant and rave for an hour about how it's "evil" to do so, calling you a sellout, and only after you basically threaten their lives get a simple "Oh, just enable __________" from 'just another user'. (Yes Gentoo, I'm looking at you.)
Solaris has been like that for a while
I think at some point in the near future, OpenSolaris will be just as user-friendly as PCBSD, and just like PCBSD already has a great license.
