My question is, hopefuly, simple: I need objective and true informations about

You shouldn't experience problems running Linux applications on
FreeBSD. Linux isn't really "emulated" in the sense that applications
need to be translated before being executed, but rather we just use a
different set of syscall mappings for Linux programs as well as a port
that installs the necessary parts of userland Linux. If Linux
