I gave them both a try when I first got into FreeBSD.  I didn't particularly
care for their package management system.  DesktopBSD has a really cool
little quite of tools that are quite useful on the desktop, and Ive found I
cant live without them (the tray-mounter is great!).  Thankfully, these
tools are available in the standard FreeBSD ports tree.

Ultimately, after giving both an honest try, I ended up staying with
FreeBSD, and have never looked back.
