How does XP monitor Program usage?

  DocP 12:31 22 Feb 07

The "add and remove programs" utility in Control Panel reports various usage information: frequently, occasionally, rarely etc.

How and where does XP record this information? I imagine it's in the Registry. Does it keep a record of every use? Is there a utility to read this information?

Does Bill Gates read all these reports before he goes to sleep?

I imagine Bill Gates will spend endless evenings looking at my usage of Picasa or flight sim.
