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.


I think you are wrong, FreeBSD does better in many things, but Phoronix did an independent analysis for the specific Debian kFreeBSD effort:
