Actually, no, he doesn't. While it's true that X11 does have security
issues, nobody in his right mind would be running X11 on a server
(particularly not on an internet-facing one), because this fact is
already well-known. Besides, if X11 is the issue, the BSDs (or any other
Unix flavor) would be affected just the same.

Don't misunderstand. This isn't a debate pro-Linux or anti-BSD or
something. I'm merely pointing out that Mr. Furman is spreading FUD,
nothing more.
