Canonical now has a package which provides them a census of systems using recent versions of Ubuntu.


Unsurprisingly, this package is called 'canonical-census'.

I think it's a good idea to install it, especially if you have a fairly unusual or old system. I would expect that to encourage Canonical to support your hardware with future releases of Ubuntu.

  It's completely normal that you lose data on "Windows" platforms.
  That's why you have a Linux/BSD/UNIX server for backups.
