One of the functions that Microsoft plans to implement in their new operating system Longhorn is something you could compare to the black box found on airplanes. The black box is a unit that collects information from the airplane and can after an accident help investigators find the source of the problem. A similar solution will be integrated into Longhorn to help users with unstable systems. When a crash occurs data will automatically be sent to Microsoft for analysis. The data being sent will show exactly what the user was doing just before the crash. In other words quite sensitive information can be sent to Microsoft from your computer, but Microsoft ensures that the user will be able to control the amount of data to be sent and that everything will be completely anonymous.
