I went through their homepage. File system could be an advantage. But for
desktop? Don't know (especially as compared to ext3/4).

What pleases me as a user is effective use of CPU to achieve higher
efficiency and a minimalist no-bloat approach to installation, services
etc.

BSDs I saw till now are good in the latter, though Linux fared better on
efficiency so far for me including file system efficiency.

About trying this one out .. well.. why not.. whenever time permits.
