Been on MacOS + SmartOS for DayJob + home since 6 years (actually migrated from Linux to SmartOS for measurable performance gains and containers model).  Pretty happy sailing other than having to modify a lot of Chef recipes to accommodate different paths...
  New day job is Gnu/Linux, boring as that may seem..  But they offered remote, so, you know..  

Oh, and also, FreeBSD for the Raspberry Pis.  Has native zfs!

No need to cry..  at Dayjob we run Joyent SmartOS, which is Solaris done
by a bunch of former Sun folks.  Oracle need not apply..  There is a
private cloud infrastructure running a very large e-commerce site on it.
You may want to look into SmartOS or OmniOS if you want more of a
desktop experience.  Patches and pretty good support....  all around.

Thank you for that. Eventually, I was going to ask the list if they knew of a decent version of Solaris that would fill my needs.

I'll take a look.
