Debian and its clones "ZFS will be supported in Debian Squeeze using the official installer. This means that Debian Squeeze will be one of the first GNU distributions to support ZFS. In fact, even though ZFS support didn't make it to Debian-Installer beta1 by the time it was released, it is now available in the netboot images (this happens because netboot images fetch newer installer components from the internet)."

(There's just so many things done better in the BSD userland (like ifconfig, vmstat -i, bsdtar, nc, a bunch more I can't think of right now but that irritate me to no end when I try to access them on Linux systems).

And my university's FreeBSD machines can't even run top properly (no output, sole thing to do is Ctl+C) and take ages to boot as soon as there's a single small package update because they absolutely have to do that at boot time.

Not to mention that everything slows down to death when you're running out of disk quota, even though there's still plenty of RAM available.

I'm sure that a properly configured BSD does not have these issues, what I'm trying to say is that maybe your issues with Linux do not come from Linux software as a whole, and you'd find a properly configured Linux system more interesting.
