Mine is v1.0; a few weeks ago switched to gargoyle. Rock solid. USB was flaky with the original firmware, but with OpenWRT seems fine.
USB3 support in FreeBSD 10 is OK (bunch of external disks used for PC backup - speed was essential). No problem with hot-plug either. Ports upgrade is trivial (although I have switched to pkg-ng now). I really can't find why do you think that security updates are difficult either. I've got only one 9.2 system around which I at the moment am not bothered to upgrade.
Test suite summary for libressl 2.0.0
'make check' under -current amd64:
Why is this posted as AC for goodness sake? I would sign under this any day.
In case anyone here cares, Hyper-V support has been imported in HEAD - see http://svnweb.freebsd.org/base?view=revision&revision=255524 . I managed earlier today to build a kernel with it and do a number of performance tests - it looks good.
This is not present in the 10-Alpha CD yet by default, you have to get the latest source with svn, add ''driver hyperv" to the GENERIC and build it; I'd switch to labelled fstab entries before installing and rebooting it, though. Swap the 'de' with 'hn' network adapter etc.
Meet you by the excession, but what matters, please first consider playing some games, using some state of the art weapons and learning to play properly the hydrogen sonata inversions, looking windward on the surface detail.
More or less exaclty my experience with Windows 8. And don't forget the many keyboard shortcuts available - [WIN]+X is a lifesaver...

I was in the same position some 6 months ago, eventually buying a Samsung EX1 (AKA TL500 in the States, I am told). Oh, boy, what a problem - now I can't find any excuse to buy myself a DSLR or a MFT camera... And yes, I know of the deficiencies of this particular camera, but they do not matter to me at this stage. I carry the camera all the time with me, ready to shoot any moment I see something remotely interesting.
I routinely run 7-8 VBox guests with decent performance on a very modest dual socket dual core 8GB Opteron box - but under some version of Solaris, at this moment OpenIndiana 151a. I keep VirtualBox updated to the latest version (I'll put 4.1.4 tomorrow, though). I use it for network testing - Solaris, CrossBow and VirtualBox make for a very decent lab environment, not to mention ZFS snapshots and DTrace. The guests include three W2K8R2 DCs, some OpenBSD firewalls, mix of NetBSD VMs, two used to build -current and pkgsrc all the time, some W7 as well. Memory may be tight at times, but still it manages.
I've never ran VirtualBox hosted by Linux and do not intend to even try it (actually, I don't have a physical machine under Linux at this time). I do run a few Linux guests here and there, on my laptop while it is under W7-64 for example - Bodhi is quite nice. They usually cause the most problems - getting the right kernel source, development environment, headers and the rest.
