you cannot install a tarball, you can store a tarball.
A tarball is nothing more than an archive, containing files (tar works on BSD and Linux).
So, technically, the answer is yes.
However, if you mean, installing/using the files inside (linux targeted) a tar file, then the answer is yes, if you installed the linux compatibility layer inside bsd. (and the program is not too complicated for this compatibility layer to interpret)

anyway... @all: the OP has said the thread could be closed, and he/she found the best distro of his//her liking.

Final word (hopefully).

What is the BEST Linux OS ?

The best Linux OS (Operating System) is Linux, also known as GNU/Linux.
The best distribution of Linux for you, is the one that suits your needs and/or tastes.
Amen.
