Microsoft on April 13 launched a new "opt-in" based "Windows Feedback Program" inviting customers who want to be more actively involved providing direct feedback to Microsoft.

The program is invite-only and only available for customers in the US.

"We are actively seeking volunteers who are using Windows 7 or the Windows 8 Consumer Preview to participate. The program is not a way to submit bugs for the Windows 8 Consumer Preview, but rather a way to help the company "build better software by getting a broader understanding of your perceptions and experiences with our products"," Microsoft stated in a new blog post on the Windows Experience Blog.

"Customers who are invited into the program can choose to provide feedback in two ways: through surveys or automatically by installing a special client on their PC that collects data," Microsoft added.

Those who get invited for over 4 months will be eligible to receive free software and Xbox games such as Microsoft Office 2010, Kinect Disneyland, and Forza Motorsport 4."

The program consists of filling out surveys or by installing a special client that collects data on your PC.
