Switched from Linux to FreeBSD about a month ago. First I did it for my server, then my desktop.
I always thought of FreeBSD as another failed alternative OS. I must say, from the moment I started using it it seemed much more rock solid than Linux could ever be. Plus I admire the fact that FreeBSD developers focus more on technology than politics.
FreeBSD supports ZFS, Jails, appears to use less memory, has rock-solid stability, great documentation, great security warnings. The list goes on.
