Hi Marc, can you please post these individually to different lists
next time rather than one massive cross-post?

Yes I should think that is pretty obvious. =)  I would expect that
Yahoo! alone has ~2 orders of magnitude more FreeBSD servers than what
is represented there.

These numbers have basically no correlation with the number of
installed instances of these operating systems.  Anyone interested in
this effort should submit patches to optionally install/enable this
functionality in the installer of the various operating systems
