I have the RTM from MSDN and have it running on two machines (Win8 Pro). The privacy settings on Windows 8 by default have smartscreen turned off and IE set to do not track on websites. This is not only scaremongering, but incorrect as well. Windows 8 seems to actually be a step forward for privacy, not backwards; if you do turn on smartscreen than MS will scan the downloaded program to ensure that it is not malware, etc, much like almost all the Anti-Virus programs do (and is expected of them these days).
