That's a commonly-made point, but I'm not sure it's really borne out by evidence. From my perspective, the kernel/userspace interaction layer is far *more* robust in linux than it is in BSD. Think about things like the module subsystem, udev, hald, sysfs, NetworkManager, et. al. In theory, the "tight coupling" between the BSD kernel and userspace layers would make this sort of thing easier, yet this is one of the areas where BSD, frankly, compares very poorly.
