1) Stability in the meaning of "does not break config semantics from one
second to the other without mentioning".
2) Help from the list which not only solves your problem, but teaches!
3) Features like ZFS, PF, periodic, ZFS ...
I could name many more, but you wanted the top three and I am not really

BTW, I got hooked coming from Gentoo, so I am sure I would miss and then
list many more FreeBSD-likables when I would be forced away.
