FreeBSD is unix and FreeBSD complies with the Single Unix
Specification[1] and other standards like POSIX, so basically yes.  If
theres any difference between the standards spec and the FreeBSD
implementation, it's generally because the FreeBSD implementation is a
superset of what's required.



[1] Informally, because actually getting the OS tested costs money.
That's why FreeBSD is unix, but not Unix(TM).
