I have to disagree. The development process may be different,
but what the end user sees is the same. Actually, the main difference
I see is that Debian has a lot of infrastructure ("glue logic" I'd
call it) to turn a collection of packages into an operating system
that FreeBSD does not have. Things like the menu system, doc-base, etc.

But I won't get into an OS flamewar with you. Your comment
just disagrees with my experience. FreeBSD is a fine system, but
I don't believe that Debian is any less fine.
