IE 10 - tracking turned off as default

What tracking is turned off by default in IE 10

So, I just turned on my computer this morning and discovered IE 9 has been updated to IE 10. At the top of the browser screen that showed up, was something about tracking being automatically turned off. Can anyone tell me what kind of tracking is turned off?

Would whatever is turned off prevent Google Analytics from tracking websites an IE 10 user visited, for instance?

Follow up question: I just looked in the tracking settings in IE 10, and it looks like there are a lot of things that might be turned off by default, but I'm not sure. The terminology isn't very clear, and I don't know what all the things in the list are. Can someone tell me exactly what is turned off by default?

We covered news of the Do Not Track option earlier, and it's a privacy setting.

This is my day for "funny you should say that" because only yesterday I noticed "Dnt:" headers for the first time. (Quick check shows that I've been getting them for ages, just never happened to notice before.)

Ongoing question: The browser's prefs typically say something like "(don't) allow websites to track me". Is it assumed that the user knows what this means? Personally I have absolutely no idea-- and I kinda think I know marginally more than the statistical average MSIE user. What, if anything, does my server do with the header?

engine, the link behind "we covered" leads to a single post in the MSIE forum. I can't believe there wasn't some further discussion somewhere.
