There's a (somewhat) objective list of differences at the beginning of Greg 
Lehey's book "The Complete FreeBSD". I understand Greg, who lives in 
Australia and is considered to be a world authority on FreeBSD, is not 
adverse to Linux BTW. You could ask him yourself about differences, he's 
pretty approachable: grog at lemis.com

Or you could make your own assessment. Perhaps you could start with:



BTW, I use both Linux and FreeBSD, depending on the application, though I'm 
nowhere near expert with either (as is self evident more times than I prefer!).
