theres an argument here in our office about linux vs. freebsd

we're building a new nfs server for our entire dept, and i suggested using
fbsd, however, an opponent put forth linux and said that:

"there is no difference between linux and freebsd kernels, except that
linux has much better driver support.. WHY use obscure freebsd?"

anyone got any ammo i can use here? i'd really rather use fbsd since i'm
much more familar with it and its never let me down (except in the area of
native java support), and i believe it'd be perfect for our nfs box

but i'll need some good concrete evidence to make my case..
