You are unusual. I know of a couple of major developers that don't
own any i386 hardware, but even most of the people hacking NetBSD for
machines other than i386 own an i386 running NetBSD, too. I've got a
bunch of sharks, but I mostly run on my i386 boxes. I've got a lot of
machines deployed at clients, all i386, and by far the largest
category of users I've seen overall appears to be i386.
