This is no longer really valid with OpenJDK 8. I run a production Hadoop and HBase cluster on FreeBSD at work. I run Scala applications on my personal FreeBSD servers.

What about performance, have you benchmarked this? Java 7 was in my experience 50% slower on FreeBSD.

Something sounds suspicious there, I would use DTrace to see what is going on with locking. I have no performance complaints, including the HBase cluster that is very demanding.
