Windows "As we pass the one month anniversary of the general availability of Windows 8, we are pleased to announce that to-date Microsoft has sold 40 million Windows 8 licenses. Tami Reller shared this news with industry and financial analysts, investors and media today at the Credit Suisse 2012 Annual Technology Conference. Windows 8 is outpacing Windows 7 in terms of upgrades." Not bad, but there are the usual asterisks, as Ars notes.

It asks on the installation if you want to participate. Most Microsoft programs ask you whether you are willing (including Visual Studio and SQL Server Manager) to send usage data back to them.

I tend to say no, but they do actually say that they send the data anonymously ... it is stated quite clearly.
