Yes, before 10 it was a pain to have boot on root.  Can you now do a full ZFS install with nothing else needed?

Concerning the features, ISTR that FreeBSD had better integration of the code into e.g. kernel tunables, caches used, etc. 

ZoL had a lot of things that ran in parallel, increasing the amount of RAM needed and limiting performance. I am sure much is fixed now.
