It's kind of a virtuous cycle (or vicious cycle, if you prefer BSD): more people use Linux; more guides are written to help others, more software is readily available, and more testing is done by virtue of having a larger user base; so more people use Linux. I don't think there's much to say about qualitative comparisons between Linux and BSD that hasn't already been said to death, but I do think the two are borrowing from each other in healthy ways and approaching parity, at least in an "on paper" sense.
