    Windows Threshold Technical Preview: All about feedback


    Windows Threshold is getting really darn close to being ready for its public release. With the 30th of September quickly approaching, Microsoft is starting to put the final pieces together to create a release of the build that is ready for public consumption.

    The preview of Threshold is going to be all about feedback. Microsoft wants to collect all sorts of input from the users as to what they like, what they don't like, which features should be changed, added or removed, and anything and everything in between.

    I have no problem with feedback as long as they at least listen and implement some of the suggestions.

    Hopefully only "some" of them.

    I have long felt, with so many knowledgeable and, conversely, unknowledgeable, people commenting on their first glimpse of an early release, is one of the major contributions to bad publicity in advance, as happened with Vista and subsequently with Windows 8. It is an old anecdote, but still holds true, that bad news (feedback) travels more easily than good news.

    Reading through forums, for example, can show the most extraordinary requests that users would like to do with an OS. often possible with a little hacking, but not universally pratical. I doubt that Microsoft could accommodate all the foibles, some of which are conflicting.

    I would expect the calibre of person writing and implementing code on Threshold would know which requests would be completely mad or even insane to contemplate.

    My suggestion would be, "try listening to people other than the rabid fanboi types".

    I have long felt that this was a trap they fell into, listening only to those who kept insisting that everything they were doing was great.... and not listening to the vast majority of us who were holding our noses.

    Just my ever so humble opinion, of course.
