    Aren’t US Microsoft customers getting enough preferential treatment as it is (such as for instance actually being able to buy Zunes) without adding this to the list?

    And Canada strikes out again…

    I corrected the blog & survey to make sure it specified that only eligible participants can enter to win the Zune HD as the official rules state. Apologies to everyone that feels excluded, the Expression Blend team’s intent is not to exclude people outside of the U.S. Everyone is encouraged to submit a survey as we would like to get feedback from all of our users so that we can improve the quality of our next release.

    We unfortunately can’t change Microsoft’s rules for eligibility in the Zune HD drawing. The device is currently only available in the U.S. and based on timing we decided to proceed with the survey since we are currently planning our next release.

    We look forward to your feedback!

  4. Some of the questions on the survey are a little vague. For example, ’13. What types of projects have you worked on with Blend?’. Do you mean, what sort of applications are we building? (e.g., lob, games, etc.)

    Also, it’s very long. I gave up around question 20. (Needed to get back to work).

    Hi Christopher,

    I hope you submitted your 20 answered questions at least 🙂 Also, feel free to only answer the questions related for your experience with Blend. For example depending on whether you or a visual designer or a developer you may find you have comments about some areas and none in others which is ok.

    Regarding question 13, yes what kinds of apps are your building? LOB and games are great examples. Feel free to ask more questions if something is not clear.

    Please can you make it clearer somewhere near the beginning that only the U.S. is going to be allowed to enter.

    Having to download the rules to find that out is a bit of a pain.

    How about having some competitions the rest of the world can enter

    I get a "PageNot Found" from Microsoft Connect when I follow the survey link. What happened?

    Hi Adam,

    I just fixed the link. Let me know if it works 🙂
