I don't know.

I was hoping to find an OS distribution that works OOTB.  The key 
features I'm looking for are:

1.  Full support of my hardware; notably Enhanced Speed Step, AES-NI, 
Intel HD Graphics 2000 dual head, and SSD TRIM.

2.  ZFS on encrypted partitions, including root.

I guess I'll have to wait for PC-BSD 10 or FreeBSD 10.
