*Perhaps it would be possible to get the FreeBSD site to keep track of downloads? I know that this isn't an ideal solution since not everyone will get FreeBSD from the site, plus it doesn't take into account all of the people who already have FreeBSD unless the site has been tracking downloads for awhile now. But at least it would be a start of some sort too.

Statistics are _never_ accurate. In this particular case
they're especially inaccurate, because the bsdstats project
has started just recently, and only few people are using it
(5000 is probably nothing compared to the total amount of
BSD machines in the world). Therefore the current numbers
are hardly representative, they're skewed by regional
fluctuations in the spreading of the bsdstats script.
