1) It's basically FreeBSD; you can't go wrong there.
2) It's fully set up with a choice of desktop environment; traditionally KDE.
3) If your hardware supports it, it all just works right from the start.

That's really pretty much it. Learn more about the BSDs and specifically FreeBSD to find out if it is a good match for you. I recommend the following article if you already know and/or use Linux:

Also being able to install directly to ZFS without having to perform any magic tricks is very cool.
