It may be that the developers mostly use Linux but Unix (i.e. BSD) works 
perfectly fine as well.  I run it on NetBSD and it is rock solid.

As for Asterisk vs. FreeSwitch, as a data point I started out with the 
latter but converted to Asterisk before going live.  FS really was more 
Linux oriented and I had many problems getting it working on NetBSD.  I 
also find the support here better.

If you run NetBSD (and probably any other BSD) you can install from 
their package system.  I compile from source using the package but you 
can also install a pre-compiled version just as easily.
