Pros: Good desktop BSD system
Cons: Only available for 64bit computers

Whilst trying this version of FreeBSD, I found it to be a somewhat heavy system, if you have the resources, it is a good BSD desktop system. I had it running on a 3.4ghz i3 with 4gb ram, and a dual 1ghz, 1gb ram system, but found it slow compared to my usual Linux distro. (Perhaps because it uses ZFS.)
