So, I have two keyboards, one for Windows and one for MacPro, and a little button to push to switch the displays, because the Mac won't work with my KVM, even though its HDMI. Sometimes, I type on the wrong keyboard. Once, I hit delete. It didn't work, so I did it again. I am grateful for that little prompt: "Are you sure you want to delete the class file that you've been working on for a few days without backing up"?
We would like to invite you to become a member of the Microsoft Partner Research Panel (MSPRP). This panel, run by MDC Research on behalf of Microsoft, has been helping Microsoft Partners’ voices be heard for over a decade. The panel is composed of a select number of Microsoft Partners, like you, who have agreed to offer their thoughts and opinions regarding Microsoft Partner Network offerings and other Microsoft programs. As a member of this community, you will receive periodic invitations to participate in a wide variety of research studies.
Do you have any experience of the seriousness of this?

I imagine the ribbon bar and the new Skype UI came out of a panel like the one you have been invited to
Personally I would avoid it like the plague unless you like sitting on committees in which case it will probably be heaven

As you know, our team truly appreciates your feedback, and we’re always working to open up more channels of communication with you. Your insights help us improve our solutions and – just as important – be better partners for you.
If that's the feedback channel they listen to (instead of beta testers and users, whom they traditionally ignore) then you'll be in a group composed of Vista and Windows 8.0 fans who love the Ribbon and SHOUTY MENUS ... your choice.

I got invited to something similar at one point (not Microsoft though). I didn't like the non-compete/NDA stuff they wanted me to sign. Probably worth reading the terms and conditions before you accept.
No, no experience of any sort with it. I would have two concerns : how much time will this require and are NDAs to sign. I would not be willing to spend much time at all and I would refuse to sign a NDA.
That's just me though. For all I know, you might have no problems with either of those.
I read the first couple of words, but am two tired to read the rest of what you are peddling.
