Only somewhat; installed != used, but there's no clean way to track
which apps are actually used (or is there?).  Windows has something
like this - if you've ever gone to the Add/Remove Programs applet to
remove something, it notes roughly how often that app is used.  I just
know that large "Everything"-style installs will overcount.
