Project Objective:

"The mission of this site is to compile semi-accurate numbers for advocacy and
marketing of the *BSD operating systems."
PC-BSD, to the best of our knowledge, is the only one that defaults to enabled, 
while the rest have to be enabled manually.

For FreeBSD users, you just need to install /usr/ports/sysutils/bsdstats to set 
things up.

If you aren't participating, we very much encourage you to start ... the report 
script is a shell script, so you can scan it to figure out what, exactly, is 
being sent in .. and there is only one level of reporting that is  required, 
and that is Operating System + Version ... Device and Ports reporting are 100% 
optional ...

For those that are participating ... once more, thank you ... and spread the
word, we need more ...
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me ...
