Wrong. Most people who have POSTED consider Postfix/Exim better than sendmail. This is not at all any kind of scientific or accurate poll. You might consider also that Postfix is under the IBM license which has an "advertising clause" that is incompatible with the Berkeley/ FreeBSD license that FreeBSD is under - and EXIM is under the GPL which is utterly and totally incompatible with the FreeBSD/Berkeley license and would probably cause problems for commercial users of FreeBSD.
