I've been running FreeBSD for ages. Methinks it was 5.1 when I installed it first.
However, I'm using it as a source-based OS. When I install it I do the minimal base install, then I set up make.conf to fit my hardware, rebuild world and kernel with custom configuration, reboot and start installing from ports.
I have a problem with suspend/resume, but other than that, it seems pretty solid. This is my first try with Gnome 3+, so I'm still playing with it. You need graphics that the inteldrm or radeondrm driver support -- my first attempt was on a crappy little nettop box that wasn't supported.
