let's start by asking why isn't our install base as big as the others..

what else? 

mass conformity doesn't always tell much about the efficiency of the
OS, but we do need more drivers and support from vendors.  I don't mean to
start an OS war, but I would like for all of us NetBSD users and
developers to figure out how to better promote our OS.  So let's start
finding the areas we need to work on and do it together.
