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."

It isn't marked "experimental" for fun. Only a handful of people have tested it, and there are plenty of problems that they run into and have to work around. If you want to be an experimental/alpha tester, go for it.

But if you want to try a ZFS that is known to be pretty stable, try Nexenta Core or the OpenSolaris Project Indiana Developer Preview 2 LiveCD.
