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."

Yes because of 1.0 it's mature. There is some difference between hype and honesty. The latter you'll find with *BSD. Furthermore it's no secret, that even in Solaris ZFS has got some problems, especially with pools. Last not least ZFS _is_ a WIP project at Sun.
