Microsoft’s Product Feedback Center

MSDN Product Feedback Home: This is an interesting development over at Microsoft:

By submitting suggestions and reporting bugs on the latest builds of Visual Studio 2005 and other technologies, you’re talking directly to Microsoft development teams. You can collaborate with Microsoft developers, MVPs, and beta testers to identify problems and workarounds, and then track feedback online. You also get notifications of changes and fixes.

Found via this site, which said this:

It’s interesting not only because Microsoft is brave enough to host a website that lists only bad things about their software (imagine what ammunition it’ll be for a ms-haters, ultimate proof that ms software is full of bugs).

Looking through comments on those bugs, Microsoft is really reading bug reports, tries to repro them and fix them.
