bsd is not 'linux'.

no linux distribution or freebsd is 'best' for qmail. as long as you use a recent version of the distribution, any distribution will do.

using qmail instead of postfix in most situations is a bad idea.

Isn't it amazing how so many people can type "linuxpakistan.net" into their browsers but not "google.com"?

Linux is Unix-like, meaning it acts like Unix but is slightly different in how programs interact and how you work w/ the system. (Technically, Linux is just the kernel. The entire OS is GNU running on the Linux kernel, hence the more accurate GNU/Linux title).

FreeBSD is Unix. Well, since SCO owns the copyright and trademarks to the name "Unix", all the BSD's and other Unix-like OSes aren't legally Unix. But BSD is the child of Berkeley Unix, so format-wise it's Unix. (There are several versions of BSD: FreeBSD is the most popular since it's designed for the X86 chips, OpenBSD is designed to be the most secure *nix available, and NetBSD has been ported to nearly every CPU every made. These are "the big 3" though other versions exist).

FreeBSD uses "ports" to install software whereas GNU/Linux uses RPM or DEB, depending on the distro. Most of the software available for Linux can be installed on BSD, especially if it's compiled from source. BSD can use the different GUI's available to GNU/Linux, such as KDE or GNOME, so visually you can't tell the difference. The CLI shell for GNU/Linux is bash whereas FreeBSD uses csh (the C shell) for root and sh (the Bourne shell) for users, by default.

Probably the biggest difference is that GNU/Linux was built to be a Unix clone; there is no Unix code used in it's creation but it has a Unix-like environment. There are other differences, but those are probably the biggest.

For those who don't know, OS X is based on the Darwin core OS utilizing FreeBSD underpinnings and uses the Mach kernel. It uses fink to allow for BSD "porting" of applications so users can use most of the F/OSS software available.
