Yes, it is a FreeBSD desktop:

"Mac OS? X is the latest version of the operating system for Apple 
Computer Inc.'s Macintosh? line. The BSD core of this operating system, 
Darwin, is available as a fully functional open source operating system 
for x86 and PPC computers. The Aqua/Quartz graphics system and many 
other proprietary aspects of Mac OS? X remain closed-source, however. 
Several Darwin developers are also FreeBSD committers, and vice-versa."

It's not a free desktop, but it's still a FreeBSD desktop.
