I think you underestimate how important dtrace is in this release. When I read the white paper about it, I was drooling. I would love to see something like this in FreeBSD (or Linux). It's one of those features that's utterly essential for high end enterprise work, yet will have repercussions for ordinary developers who simply want to find out exactly what their machine is doing. The developers do talk about related Linux projects, but it seems clear that there's really nothing in the same league.
I really recommend taking a few minutes to read that paper. It's very impressive stuff.
