MSDN Product Feedback Center

Yes! It is now public so we can talk about it and use it more widespread. The MSDN Product Feedback Center was announced today at TechEd EU, and was the official launch of the center to the public. You can check it out here:

Basically this will allow you to submit bug reports direct to the Microsoft Product Teams, track other bugs that have been reported, and get direct feedback on the problems you are having.

This is a great idea, I just hope it works. I don’t envy the guys responsible on the product teams for managing this. I can’t count the number of times I have people tell me they “found a bug” in some .NET technology, when the “bug” is really just their misunderstanding of how to use it correctly or wanting it to do something it was not designed to do. I just hope the signal to noise ratio is high enough to make it effective.
