FreeBSD "FreeBSD is back to its incredible performance and now can take advantage of multi-core/CPUs systems very well... So well that some benchmarks on both Intel and AMD systems showed release 7.0 being faster than Linux 2.6 when running PostreSQL or MySQL. Federico Biancuzzi interviewed two dozen developers to discuss all the cool details of FreeBSD 7.0: networking and SMP performance, SCTP support, the new IPSEC stack, virtualization, monitoring frameworks, ports, storage limits and a new journaling facility, what changed in the accounting file format, jemalloc(), ULE, and more."

The main reason for me to try FreeBSD would be ZFS. The question remains: how solid and mature is ZFS support in FreeBSD?

It's their first production version with ZFS support. Would it be a better choice to try a OpenSolaris distro or not? Most OpenSolaris distros are not mature in other respects.

Comments from people with some experience in this field would be welcome!
