BSD and Darwin derivatives Marc G. Fournier has launched a new project with the intention to show hardware vendors that there in fact are a lot of BSD users out there. "We are trying to demonstrate to hardware and software vendors out there that BSD should be viewed as a serious operating system, not just as a hobbyist system, for support (i.e. hardware drivers) purposes."

FreeBSD users should consider this, even though we tend to not care about numbers. Anything that will get us better hardware support is welcome. Also, perhaps down the road these numbers will help convince potential (or current) employers that you weren't just wasting your time ;-).

I am definitely going to set this up on the 100+ machines I am responsible for.
