Dear Yasmin

Both are derived from Unix but they are different Linux is Technically a Kernel while FreeBSD is a full Operating system. I believe we have an freebsd ambassador on the list who might explain it better.
As to the second question specially in sudan I think the main reason is the lack of awareness which SdNOG is helping to combat. 
Both can be powerful or not depending on you are trying to do
