Two reasons, while OS X (Er, macOS) is Unix based, the GUI that iTunes runs in is much more than just a gnome-GUI and it would take massive efforts to port something like iTunes to FreeBSD.

Second, it’s an insignificantly small market since it only includes those very few people who run BSD and won’t use Windows or macOS.

There’s a lot more whinging for Linux support, and that’s literally never going to happen since that would be much more effort for o my slightly larger user base.

This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
