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."

All BSD fans should install this program. I have done this already on FreeBSD.

cd /usr/ports/sysutils/bsdstats
make install clean

then follow the instructions.

once it is installed,

ee /etc/periodic.conf

and add these two lines:

monthly_statistics_enable="YES"
monthly_statistics_report_devices="YES"

--------------------------------------------------

I installed it on all of my servers. Great to see something like this.

If you update your ports (cvsup or portsnap) first, then the latest version of bsdstats automatically sets up the configuration.
