Ubuntu creators will launch a counter of installed operating systems

    imageCanonical has announced a program that will count the number of installations of Ubuntu. The counting application is called canonical-census . The developers promise that they will only collect information about the successful installation of the operating system, the version of Ubuntu and the name of the computer. True, ordinary users can still live in peace, since such a collection of information will affect only pre-installed OS by computer manufacturers (the so-called OEM installation). The application is already available on www.launchpad.net and in the standard Ubuntu 10.04 repository.
