There's a huge one.  Linux is just a kernel; the userland comes from
a few hundred different sources, and it shows.  BSD, just like SunOS,
IRIX, and the other "real Unixes" is a single, coherent product with a
much more polished feel.  I'm not going to use any distribution based
around RPM, and both Slackware and Debian lag too far behind the cutting
edge for me to use the official channels to stay current.

With *BSD, I do a cvs update, a make world, and reboot.

No, not really.
