Very strange information

Do not forget about wifi, video cards and other hardware, if you have an unpredictable variety of hardware to work on, better choose linux.

If choosing between dflybsd and freebsd, pay attention on enablement if target hardware, two bsds may have a different situation.

Based on your not very deep description, I do not see big difference between dflybsd and freebsd. And I am not aware of how they both handle working as a live cd, so cannot give an advice here.
