As you have noticed with recent releases, we are in process of significantly redesigning the experience of our MSDN, TechNet and Expression sites, as well as adding many new social applications and capabilities. While we do this we are not ignoring mission critical need you have to efficiently download the bits you pay for as part of your subscription. We know how critical that is.
The team that builds the UX and interface for subscriber downloads is working to revamp the download experience and would love your feedback. Please take a look at the current mock-ups.
If you have a passion for this area and want to provide input or feedback - you can communicate with the team directly.
Your feedback in these areas is really useful and very influential, so thanks in advance!
