If you review the "Not done" items @ http://wiki.freebsd.org/ZFS and still are 
doubting, then http://www.opensolaris.org/os/community/zfs/whatis/ describes 
what the features *can* be. I got a good impression from that text what the 
advantages are, but I'm too conservative to migrate myself. YMMV.
