Surveys, Get Yer Surveys Heah!

I’m sorry – I just didn’t know any other way to make surveys sound exciting.

Peter Saddow asked the SQL community to put a plug out for a few SQL Express surveys that Microsoft has developed.  The results of these surveys will directly influence the development of the SQL Express installation experience, so if you work with SQL Express, please take the time to fill them out.  Or, as Peter more eloquently said:

Microsoft is committed to making the SQL Server Express installation experience the best in industry. For us to achieve this goal, we need your candid feedback on your experience with installing SQL Server Express.  If you have used several different versions of SQL Server Express, focus on the latest version that you have used.  When SQL Server 2008 Customer Technical Preview 3 is released, feel free to complete this survey again since several installation improvements have been made.  This information will be used to improve our future releases including SQL Server 2008 R2 and SQL Server 11.  This survey will be available until the end of November.

Please visit the following blogs that contain instructions:

Seriously.  Fill them out.  And blog about it, or “retweed”, or whatever it is you kids do nowadays.

I thought I would never live to see the day you would fill out a survey! BTW your attempt to make it sound interesting was an epic fail...LOL. On a serious note, the survey is definitely important to provide feedback!
