The only debate could be if a microkernel (like minix) is better than a monolithic kernel. Since freebsd is monolithic, there is nothing to debate. And if you really want to debate a linux vs freebsd on a general configuration, just please shut up because we all know Linux will kick its ass on 99% of things, from drivers to personal configuration.
And discussing about distros is bullshit, it has got nothing to do with who is better between a linux kernel and a freebsd one. Too much fanboyism here.
FreeBSD has it's advantages over Linux, and vice versa.
Then to be fair, you must also say that Linux has a lot more advantages than FreeBSD. And about ZFS and its license, you shouldn't even mention it, otherwise I could start a debate on Microsoft stuff that beats Linux due to the lack of "x" software/driver or whatever under an OS !Windows.
The each have their purposes and strengths. It's tough to say one has more advantages than the other because it really depends on what you're trying to use it for.

And that would be just more zealotry to most people.
Which OS should I use should always be followed by the question "What do you want to do?"
