couldn't agree more, i'm a fbsd user myself yet i run few linux boxes 
for other reasons such as client request or compatibility issues

its not advisable to move from production to another platform production 
and you never touched FreeBSD, just play with it for few
as Torfinn point out and move when you feel comfortable.

Although migration from Linux to BSD is not the hardest thing todo i've 
did it with live servers after digging around and knowing exactly
what is needed todo before just throwing things and praying to have 
things work as expected, you always need todo some testing before
going to live.

Just my 2 fils ;)
