I'm going to have to chime in after all my FreeBSD post :)

2. 5.3+ has much better threading model
3. OS X applications tend to lag slighly behind
    particularly perl and autotools
4. is running FreeBSD
5. bigger user commnunity
6. I know that all of perl,httpd,apr,apr-util,apr-iconv,mp2 compile and 
run on it
7. libapreq2 is 90% there
8. I despise the bastardized etc system of Mac OS X.
    Don't get me wrong, I own a mac(g4) too:)
9. The intergrated build enivorment is the best I've seen.
    [thats probably personal opinion]
10. Directory structure
11. Disk Slicing

I'm sure I could think of more......
