Last year we setup a small site on connect.microsoft.com in order to let our blog readers, developers and users file bugs, make suggestions and get some conntent like whitepapers and samples early. The downside to the site was that you couldn’t easily deep link and it required a Windows Live (aka Passport) login. Well the folks at connect.microsoft.com have launched a new version of connect that enables access to much of the site without a login including readonly access to the bugs filled there much like the popular MSDN Product Feedback Center.
