That would indeed need human input as the auto-tracking can only get the kernel in use not the distro as that is not exposed externally or the desktop used the problem with the human input is that it is never accurate as the sample is not representative of the user base so a voluntary poll just does not give reliable information. As for Linux and BSD being similar they a both based on UNIX the major difference is the kernel and it's licences. Enjoy the Choice
