As of this posting, we are getting reports in from all the *BSD variants:
PCBSD 4 872
FreeBSD 1 627
The sites includes basic instructions for installing / running on the
various *BSDs ...
Hey, man, don't you think this statistics is a bit stupid? It shows
only how many users
your statistics software has, not *BSD users count. And I bet you have
it installed by
default in PCBSD (and not others). So, what's the point?
It's a lower bound (assumming no cheating which you can't detect anyway)
on the number of users you have, which might not be /completely/
useless. Using those numbers for userbase comparisons is silly of course :)
Unless the bsdstats script can do reasonably anonymous data collection
so that we can all turn it on by default I don't see that changing.
