There are only two reasons to keep a product secret while still talking about it:

A lot of people outside of Europe (and to be fair, even Europeans) doesn't understand how the EU works. Ireland can't simply decide to stop obeying EU treaties any more than a US state is allowed to all of a sudden decide that someone no longer have to pay federal tax. If that happened, you can be sure that the IRS would demand the taxes be paid in full after they found out about it.
Given the tech-oriented and international audience of this side, I'm not sure that one can assume that I am alone in being confused by the wording of the title. A better one would be to simply refer to the person as "sports executive".
I still run Linux on my workstations because it's easier to get all the workstation/laptop things working there. However, I'll give FreeBSD a try on the desktop as well next time I reinstall.
On the server, there are really no benefits to Linux currently.
It might sound like a trollish thing to say, but it's true. It's not the only reason of course. FreeBSD really is much nicer on the server. It's much more predicable and easier to analyse problems. The lack of systemd is just one factor that contributes to this.
If in any problem you find yourself doing an immense amount of work, the answer can be obtained by simple inspection.
