According to theory - more stability (you can crash the server running on kernel, but not the whole kernel). I have read about interesting minix ability "to heal" itself.
I don't know really, but why Gnu/Hurd is still being developed as a replacement then. And why do people choose BSD systems (only due to portage systems or higher security?) even if GNU/Linux can do much more.
And, of course, Debian BSD is not popular because novice users do not usually install Debian (there is Ubuntu now) that means that Debian BSD is even less probable to be installed.
If there would be such a thing like Ubuntu/BSD with lots of "guis", huge amount of guides, 3d graphical interface and screenshots, I think it would be much more popular.
