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."

This reminds me of The Linux Counter: http://counter.li.org/

Once upon a time, most of new Linux users registered there, if only for fun. Nobody seems to care these days.

The linux counter should do something similar. Actually the linux counter should be initiated by the distros, be in the form of a similar script. Linux like BSD needs actual usage numbers for lobbying purposes.
