Why Firefox? It's a user land application. I'm sure it's been ported
to FreeBSD, but does that tell anyone that FreeBSD is good?

I would suggest mentioning that companies such as Juniper and Network
Applications use FreeBSD as their embedded OS. At least with some
people (sysadmins and network people), that will make them look again
at FreeBSD.
