I'd say one jump forward for freeBSD, two steps back for their efforts on the free java implementation.

I use PC-BSD (FreeBSD 6.0) and this sounds great!

*UPDATE*

Flash support and OSS are the only things i have trouble with although PBI's make it much easier. PC-BSD uses Linux's Flash and it works fine(after fiddling for a couple of minutes...).
