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."

Nice project but with some limitations- it can't detect if current system is some FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD or other OS derivative like: PC-BSD, FreeSBIE, DesktopBSD, RoFreeSBIE, etc.

Given the goals of this project, it doesn't matter wether someone uses FreeBSD or PCBSD; they use the same drivers after all. Better to show a unified listing to vendors rather than a fractured list of systems people want support for.
