guess I'll try to give them more of a market to be concered about. If I
can convince the girls next door its simple and friendly to USE, then I
think anybody can be convinced, Good luck with the project, maybe I'll
find myself on the list someday

Personally I don't think this stuff should be tracked in any

none of your freedoms will be in any way infringed upon with what is
proposed ... you will always have the freedom to disable the reporting
and not particpate *shrug*
I think a much more productive goal is to get all the users that have
unsupported hardware to write into the vendor that created it and ask
them why they don't support a spawn of the OS that allowed what we
call the internet to exist. Put this message on FreeBSD.org, get
people in this list to do it, get on a soap box and scream it. I
think giving them numbers of systems will just be ignored. But
getting 1000 emails a day in multiple languages from around the world
will get them thinking maybe its worth at least releasing the specs
just to shut these people up.
The above is an "active campaign", which you will generally find
doesn't yield anything, unfortunately, since its more work then 99.9%
of the people will feel compelled to do ...
As ScottL said in one of his emails, in a form ... We don't want to
piss Adaptec off, which a "letter writing campaign" would ... what we
want to do is give Adaptec something to think about in terms of
'market missed' ...
