Key Strikes Yes - Letters NO

I can understand the need to see how often the Ctrl, Alt, Alt GR and the Windows Key are pressed and even the ensemble of letter keys but I do not see the need to store or collect the individual letter keys.

This is simply wrong. This cannot be justified, we already know which words and letters are the most common, these are already established facts.

Letters include, Passwords, user names, bank codes etc... simply unjustifiable. And when people know this they will change their habits which will skew MS results...

Alsi if MS are doing it,m then the haxors will follow, they will simply hook and chain these "accepted" procedures.... fail.
