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."

My experience with ZFS on FreeBSD has been really really good. I haven't found any problems as of yet. I recommend trying it out.
FreeBSD 7 has introduced a huge number of improvements. You really can't appreciate it until you install it on your system and watch it work for yourself. It's truly a big step forward.
Awesome work to FreeBSD Team.
