Lots of EDI vendors offer UNIX versions of their software.  There is
no out of the box freeware that I'm aware of.  If you have the basic
ability to interface your data source to different file formats, then
EDI isn't a whole lot more than another standard format.  I've generated
and read EDI files with Perl-based tools for example.  There is also an
emerging Web EDI standard.
