Story on the site indicates it is indeed closed

This entire time, Essenz never went away. I kept it as a shell company doing consulting from time to time. it has also always been my personal email. Right now the site doesn't really serve any purpose, so if you arrived hear, you have this story to read.

"We work with just about any software related to servers, Linux and web hosting."

I did find one of these that lists FreeBSD (on some sub-page)

website/data/en/vendors/consulting.toml

Rackspace is a large cloud hosting provider, they don't offer FreeBSD "consulting"

This one specifically says they only do OpenBSD now, and that they don't support FreeBSD anymore (other than migrating away from it):

In the past we’ve supported or integrated the following platforms (FreeBSD, Sun, etc). If you need help with one of these (hopefully just moving your data to something that’s current!)

617

A google site search showed only 3 references to FreeBSD, all of them offhand references in the knowledge base or user comments

am I ok to proceed with this cleanup?

website/data/en/vendors/consulting.toml
82

There is a page, but it doesn't offer any consulting or direction.

The content on the front page about embedded development was removed some time between

2011: https://web.archive.org/web/20110807094229/http://www.codegen.com/
and 2012: https://web.archive.org/web/20120228190758/http://www.codegen.com/

I think we can take the removals from Allan as a general spring cleaning measure. Companies that were falsely removed and wish to remain on that list can open a PR to be re-added again.
Mz guess is that some will not notice (or care) and for the ones that do, it's proof that they do use FreeBSD in some degree.

am I ok to proceed with this cleanup?

Go ahead, I did not find any that are in error and there's sufficient clarification/justification for the small number of sites that had still some tenuous reference to FreeBSD.
