Why the Windows 8 Consumer Previews matter

Something which I find funny are the people who comment on Microsoft properties like the Building Windows 8 Blog or Microsoft Answers, that they tried the Windows 8 Consumer Preview for a day, and found it so distasteful that they uninstalled it. They’re acting like uninstalling it is the best way to give Microsoft feedback about how usable the Operating System is. But that’s the worst way to give feedback; the best way is to use it. Microsoft tracks a lot of user behaviors in the Previews, that’s kind of the point. The result will be that people like me – who happily join the Customer Experience Improvement Programs – will be the ones that the OS is tailored to. I am a heavy user of the keyboard and the search built into Windows. I find Windows 8 to be quite usable, and do not mind the direction the OS is going at all.
