We considered it, but decided to stay with our current platform
(unixware).  However, all of our other servers are running FreeBSD, and we
would LOVE it if PROGRESS would release a version for FreeBSD.  There _is_
a BSDI version, call and see if you can get a FreeBSD-native version.

Question I have never had answered: you can run BSDI binaries in FreeBSD,
is this native or is it pseudo-emulation, i.e. are you better off getting
FreeBSD-native binaries, or does it really matter?
