The questions you ask can easily be answered by some basic searching
of the FreeBSD web site, FAQ and email archives.   Some of these are
also answered in various online publications that I don't have time
to look up for you right now, but you can easily find them.  Onlamp is
one that has covered FreeBSD features and comparisons with several OSen.
Google is your friend.

Generally yes.   They are not paid by the FreeBSD foundation although
some of them are fortunate enough to work for companies who view their
contributions to FreeBSD as relevant to their company work and so allow
them to consider the portion of their time spent on FreeBSD as part of
their company work.

It is reliable.   MAC can claim that to a great extent too.  MS cannot.
It is relatively secure.
Networking is fundamental in FreeBSD and a crowbar-ed addon in MS so it
is inherently better in networking.   It is truly multitasking and MS is
not.   There are many others.

Last I knew Yahoo was using FreeBSD.   THere are others.   Many companies
use FreeBSD for their network and backend service even when they have MS
on people's desktops.  

I hope you will do a more complete job of research before handing in
your paper just based on what I write.  Your teacher is likely to be
reading this list too and will see this.

I suggest you find a machine and install FreeBSD and become familiar with
it.   You will slowly begin to understand the advantages with experienve.
