I doubt it.

FreeBSD runs quite well under Virtualbox on a Mac.  For a lot of
purposes that's just as good.  I have FreeBSD on my Mac with the Mac's
native filesystem NFS mounted on SD, ssh into the BSD virtual machine
for a terminal session, and BSD applications use the Mac's XQuartz X
server for windowing applications.

I wouldn't use it as a production server (even under MacOS, it's a
laptop after all) but it works great for development and testing
and running programs that work better on BSD than MacOS.
