@AstonJ, well I'm really out of my depth here, but here's what remained in my head after these talks.
* Minor Updates don't destroy your system. I had that happen with Linux, it didn't even boot
* Binaries?! The speaker in the second talk said something about BSD providing binaries so he didn't have to deal with dependency hell. Had bad experience with Linux there as well, compiled something, then it wanted different versions of other things, removed old versions and compiled new ones, then they needed different versions of other things, removing those other things = destroy the system.
* The team takes care of the entire OS?!
* In the first talk, it was mentioned that FreeBSD with version 11 will be massively scalable. I like that! Buzz words!
* ZFS sounded nice, Jails sounded nice too.
* It was mentioned that Netflix is contributing to BSD's Net code.
* Using something that's not so popular, maybe another benefit for security?
* The novelty of the experience
I've only ever used BSD in the form of "PC-BSD" which says a lot, but even PC-BSD was so incredibly fast, I mean I was willing to put up with a "constant On laptop Fan" kind of fast
So I guess if all of the above is true, than I'm willing to give it a try learning new things never hurts.
