1. There are greater than 5 vendors selling NetBSD on CDROM - so there
   must be a market for it.

2. At least one company, Wasabi Systems, developing and porting NetBSD
   to new processors.

3. A fair number of new faces in the NetBSD mailing lists.

4. Several large Internet Service Providers running NetBSD.

5. NetBSD on the spacestation.

I would say there are a lot of NetBSD users.

Also, consider that Netcraft can't tell the difference between NetBSD
and OpenBSD.

I know a lot of people who have Linux running on their i386 boxes and
NetBSD/OpenBSD on their other boxes.
