So, how do you provide feedback to Microsoft today? What I am talking about when I say feedback is a bug or a suggestion like you would on a beta. I know that participating in a Beta like the Windows Home Server Beta is one way to get in your suggestions and bugs to the product team, but how do you do it on RTM product? For this conversation I want to focus completely on simply providing feedback to Microsoft to improve the quality of the product.
Now, I want to immediately remove one scenario from this discussion. The scenario is a bug that is impacting you today that you cannot get around and you need help.

Thanks for listening.
