I use both and find that performance wise there are more or less the same. My main gripe is that if you are used to the gnu tools, some options are not available if using the bsd tools. In terms of hardware support Linux is the clear winner. Also there are more proprietary apps available for Linux than the BSDs and for some apps, the BSDs have to use a Linux emulation layer. The ports system is my favourite feature on FreeBSD, its so easy to get the latest software, if you don't mind waiting for it to compile from source.
