I remember Colin Percival mentioned that lots of people were telling
him they'd jumped ship from Solaris at BSDcan this year.

I'm not sure we have this news up on our web site yet, but if not, we will soon. Many potential FreeBSD users in the Solaris space had pointed out that this was a critical feature omission ... and they were right :-).

The foundation has been funding some really interesting projects, well
done, really looking forward to the fruits from the labour. *rubs
