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 there's a script for non-freebsd users, but how am I supposed to use it? (on NetBSD) Periodicly once a month in cron? What does it send exactly? Can I run it as non-root? Can I re-run the script if I forgot to put monthly_statistics_report_devices="YES" in /etc/rc.conf? Of course I could "analyse" the script itself, however some information should be nice...

Read the man page for periodic all your questions are answered in there. This has nothing to do with cron.
