I do not know thestatistics, but as for me I'm either using FreeBSD as a
desktop, or as a server (firewall, gateway, router, database - do not
matter). On a desktop machine I have X and server is typically managed via
ssh. This leaves only installation and single-user modes for syscons
console. Other uses are rare for me.

And how do you use syscons?
