The figure for PC-BSD in November was 6551.  When I checked earlier this
evening, it was 1997.  I suppose this does NOT mean that 4554 PC-BSD
users have kicked the bucket.  Probably, it means that many PC-BSD
systems have not YET reported to bsdstats in December.  I think this way
of doing it does not serve the following purpose:

For the fulfillment of this noble mission, it would be better to display
statistics for the last complete month to casual visitors.  If people
want to see running counters, this could be done on a different page.

Just my not-so-humble opinion.
