The more appropriate question to ask first, since you kind of allude to it, is whether BSD will take greater advantage of your hardware. There's already a question for that on SO. stackoverflow.com/questions/3446231/…

Not really without the kludgey workaround. Basically we have all domain users able to administrate the machine, then only allow particular users to log into it. Not the best management scheme by a long shot.

comment How do I use time machine to restore my entire computer, rather than a file?
To clarify in step 6, does this mean you can restore the entire system from a previous date, as in "I want this system restored as it was three weeks ago?"

I don't know if you solved this, but does your system use FileVault 2 perchance?
