    If you didn't know did you at least try it? Not that I want more people finishing the survey. After all there is a $2000 prize involved.

    It is like the other questions that were not very well thought out. By the 10th question, I stopped doing the survey, because they purposely made it so that it was weighted in the favor for keeping the insider program running.

    Microsoft keeps shifting their resources from other projects, into the Server 2016 and Redstone projects. That is because both are supposed to come out at the same time. Also Microsoft is gambling that they can get the Enterprise market to buy in on the whole package of Surface, Phone, Windows 10, Office 2016/365, Server 2016.

    It is a huge risk that they are taking. Their cost per stock share took a bad nosedive before 10 came out. Then it jumped back up at the announcement of the Surface Pro 4.

    Microsoft's stock is starting to regain from tanking until August this year. They just paid out a dividen in November.

    You are a contrarian. It doesn't matter what anybody says, you feel the need to contradict. The Linux community has a treat in store.

    +1.. But heck.. if someone wants to use Linux I say, go for it. The key thing is testing it out in a VM or dual boot to make sure it's what you want. And the distribution I recommend is Mint. It's very similar to Win7 and easy to get used to.

    And as for their forums.. well let's put it this way.. they're not as friendly as we are and they don't have cookies like we do.

    Actually, the Mint dvd is a live dvd, so it is even easier trying it that way than making a vm or partition. I find the Linux groups to be more buisinesslike than unfriendly, although there are occasional potshots at Windows.

    I gave up on it, when it got to the part that you could not get past, unless it was a positive response.

    Who ever created that survey, does not understand that when thy are that long. People tend to lose interest in them after the 6th question.

    If I get one in the mail and it involves filling out six pages. It gets tossed into the recycling bin.
    That is your chance to tell MS how you feel about the program, positive or negative. Plus you got a chance to win a surface.

    Umm, no. Did you take the survey?

    I have designed surveys for major corporations and this MS survey is self-serving and direction-driven - there is no place for true critique.

    yes I did. There is a box where you can say anything you want. It's asking for a suggestion or something to that effect, but I guess you can write anything you want.
    Or simply "Strongly Disagree" on each item if that's how you feel.
    Did you take it?

    Good. I just took this one because I got the time to do it and the "Surface" bait really worked for everyone who took it.
