We trust FreeBSD and we don't think they'll stop development because it is more than 10 years old, and it is a growing OS. Large companies use FreeBSD (Yahoo, Sony, Rackspace, etc...) and they finance FreeBSD.

PC-BSD has a .com extension because this is the web site of PC-BSD software (company, not a foundation). But the OS has a BSD license (free to redistribute, change and resell).
