Is it okay to ask the following on the main site?:

I know the Node.js is available via freeBSD pkg or probably with ports. I have actually had an installation from the pkg recently. However, on Nodejs.org ther is no version for any UNIX or freeBSD. Does that mean it is not officially supported by Node.js?

I think there are two possible questions here:

  1. Does node.js officially support BSD? This is essentially a question about a programming framework and whether or not the developers of the framework "officially" support operating system X. I would recommend asking on Stack Overflow instead.

  2. How can I get node.js to work on BSD? That is fine for Unix & Linux since you're asking how to do X on a *nix machine.
