You'll find the BSDs to be quite similar and many features that are developed on one BSD make there way into the other BSDs.

For software, pkg_add is consistent across all of the BSDs and is the best way for new users to install software. All of the BSDs support pkgsrc and most of the BSDs support ports.

You might find this document ( handy as it shows the most common BSD commands and whether they come with the OS.
