I am running GNOME 3.14 on my PC-BSD desktop (FreeBSD 10.1). It has some 
rough edges here and there, but overall is working fine. 3.14 is more 
responsive than 3.12, but some of my old tweaks doesn't work any more 
(some keyboard shortcuts for example)

GNOME on PC-BSD should be the same version from FreeBSD ports.
