Microsoft Talks About Beta Feedback

Ilana Smith, a lead program manager for the Windows 8 Engineering System team has written a post talking about the comments and suggestions given by developer preview users and how they are using those to make changes for the upcoming beta. It’s always nice to see developers using consumer feedback and comments to make a product better. Of course, I do notice that there are still a lot of people that aren’t happy about the changes. They still are angry about switching from DOS to Windows, though!

Those posts prompted great discussion and we read the approximately 2200 comments you left. This was wonderful feedback for us, and, along with information from our other feedback channels, we incorporated it into our design process.
