No, thats ridiculous. Linux has multiple
distributions that use the same kernel. The fact
that freebsd only has one distribution doesn't
make it any more complete.
Performance is markedly different as well. If you
only need to do trivial things, then both are
suitable. So is Windows or Solaris. Otherwise you
just have no idea what you're talking about.
