BSD IS NOT A FAVOR OF LINUX. FreeBSD and Linux are complete independent 
re-writes of Unix. The other BSD's are forks of FreeBSD.

There are many open sourced software that are coded to execute on most 
flavors of Unix.

Microsoft Windows is a completely independent operating system which 
internally is as different as night and day to the Unix flavored 
operating systems.

Your above statement that "most people use linux over BSD" is just as 
wrong as saying "most people drive a Kia car over a VW". Each Unix 
favored operating system has different bells and whistles with their own 
loyal user groups.
