Myth users and developers could benefit from information like what
systems are being used (CPUs, graphic cards, capture devices etc).
What storage systems are being used, how often (if at all) they are
This sort of info would tell developers what directions they might
want to pursue, and would be of help to anyone contemplating putting
together a system.
I think, in fact, that "what we watch" would be of only passing

The information might not be completely accurate either, Americans,
