macOS and FreeBSD don't support Docker. FreeBSD has similar features (at 
least some of them) that Docker is built on. macOS doesn't.

For macOS, DMD and LDC support 10.7 (I think). Only supporting 10.9 and 
later wouldn't be any problem, in my opinion.

I know that Iain has talked about supporting GDC on macOS on PowerPC. 
That means something like 10.4, which is ancient.
