It probably has slightly better software and hardware support than a Solaris distro, thus making it the best os with zfs by default. That is all I can think of to answer your question. And even then, zfs as a reason is pushing it a bit

How about Debian/kFreeBSD ? ;-)

Especially for a Debian/Linux user as myself.

Anyway, btrfs is maturing pretty well lately.

Only 2 kernel versions to go until most of the features people want will be there and mature (enough). Those 2 versions will be used to merge RAID5/6 which would be similair to RAIDZ in ZFS.

I hope bcache (general read/write block cache for Linux which implements something similair to L2ARC) will be there too.

2 kernel versions is about 3 months to a half a year (releases are between 60 to 90 days)

Questions is, why? When has it ever been detrimental to widen your skillset?
Besides "(enough)" is simply no good. Especially when you're attempting to put BtrFS at the same level as ZFS.
There's a world of difference between mainstreaming some patches and a filesystem being suitable for mission critical work.
