+title: "Desktop FreeBSD won't improve unless people are using it"
+abstract: I have hits from /r/bsd, but almost none of those people are using BSD
+Shamelessly, I posted my previous post, [FreeBSD on a Thinkpad Extreme G2](https://d-s.sh/2023/freebsd-on-thinkpad-x1-extreme-g2/) on [/r/bsd Reddit](https://www.reddit.com/r/BSD/comments/124v5cm/freebsd_on_a_thinkpad_x1_extreme_g2/).
+The result, some 24 hours later, is 100 visitors. Out of that 100, 57 are using a desktop. Out of that 57, only 2 used FreeBSD—2%. No other BSDs are recorded.
+People who are into BSD don't use BSD. This seems to be a reason for lacking hardware support. If no one uses FreeBSD, no one will encounter those problems. If no one encounters them, no one will fix them.
