UPDATE: This survey is closed. For two reasons actually. First, we got just 3500 responses in less than a day, so that's good. The bad part is that these survey guys (whom I paid, BTW) deleted the survey and my account without asking. Fortunately I got the data out in an export before this happened. Sheer luck. I bet there were upwards of 5000 responses. Very unprofessional and disappointing. I'd have appreciated a heads up from them. Next time I'll just use Survey Monkey. I'll publish the results after I fancy-chart them in Excel. Thanks to everyone for participating!
UPDATE 2: Not sure what's up with these guys, but the survey is back up, so I'll keep collecting data for a few more days.
Hey folks, as I've said before, one of the things I like to do is take your comments, questions and feedback directly to the right folks inside Microsoft.
They have all sorts of scientific methods, analysts, and smarties that give them information, usage details, etc. Sometimes, however, I like to throw the product planners the occasional totally RAW web survey, just to make sure that there's fewer layers between me and the bosses.
That said, please take 10 seconds and fill out this ONE QUESTION SURVEY. Feel free to tweet it on Twitter, forward it to your friends, or blog it.

Yes, the survey is missing things. It's a survey about larger framework subsystems, not languages, not Silverlight, etc. You'll see. It's still very useful to me and others.
I'd like to get 2500 responses before I give it to the bosses. Any less doesn't really seem like a lot, you know?
I'll blog the results later! Thanks.
