That is not currently one of the Operating Systems that we offer on our droplets.

However, we will be adding it to our list soon. Once it's installed, you will be able to select that option from the create a droplet screen.
I would like to work with you to, at least, evaluate NetBSD 6.0 (I am a developer).
You can use our FeedBack system inside of the control panel to request BSD and if other customers up vote it then it will move up in priority on our product roadmap.

We constantly review the most requested items there to help prioritize how new features are added.
When do you think FreeBSD will be available?
We currently are not yet working on FreeBSD as we are focused on some core features for the platform so we do not have an ETA.

We will update our UserVoice: - when we have a more concrete timeframe.
Any update on this? I'd really like to have a FreeBSD droplet.
I'll switch if you'll have FreeBSD support. There is no point building servers on dead CentOS
Same here, if you provide FreeBSD support I'd switch right away
Would love to have FreeBSD too, please.
