Why FreeBSD kernel?

This is a serious question. These people are basically just taking everything we normally run on top of Linux and instead making it work on top of a FreeBSD kernel.

It seems to me that Linux tends to get a lot more developer attention than FreeBSD. It seems plausble, therefore, that Linux may be generally further ahead in terms of performance and other advancements.

So what is the advantage of switching to the FreeBSD kernel? I mean, why are they motivated to do it? And why would anyone want to use this?
