I created an online poll to find out what you think this blog should feature. Please feel free to leave a comment here too - especially if your favorite choice isn't listed. Thanks!
Agree, Microsoft doesn't care. :-(
Thanks again for the feedback, folks!
I want to be very clear on two points:
1. I didn't leave out anything on the basis of controversy - Excel conducted a similar poll last month and I wanted data that was comparable, so I asked the same questions (with some minor changes to reflect the differences in the two products).
2. Microsoft cares about bugs very much. Here on the Access Blog, I do provide up-to-date information about some emerging bugs when I can offer advice on workarounds or can offer a solution, but I can't guarantee complete coverage. I'm looking into the best resource for that and will report my findings in this thread.

Maybe take into consideration that there may be a good amount of your current users who are finally able to start affording your product for the first time since Office 2003. When all we really used was Word, Excell, Outlook & maybe some Power Point. (depending on if it was in a school or office/ professional setting) My 14 & 10 year old children have known more about Publisher AND Power Point than me. My ex-husband can do all kinds of amazing things with the budget in Excell & for my 1st two college papers, I lost points because even though I had set my margins to 1", I still managed to do something dumb in Word. There's a lot of changes happening...and they are significant from anything in 2003. I just glanced at what OneNote can do and I hope it is something I can use for my classes. I want to teach and maybe it can help there as well. I am not asking you to hold my hand personally. Just consider the Susie home-maker who is just now going back to school. They range from 25 yrs old to 65 years old. Their use of computers varies drastically. I have Office Pro '07 and at least 4 of the programs are useless to me without being informed about them. (and that's not even what's listed under the tools folder.) I considered version 2010, but not till I learn how to use what I already own.) Good Luck. I REALLY, really enjoy the Casual Office guy's way of teaching. He makes it easy to understand.
Steven Thomas: "Microsoft cares about bugs very much."
- But why large number of bugs reside in Access for several years?
- How can we escalate bugs? Eg. there is no tech support for Access (and others) in Czech Republic, where I live.
- Why MSFT releases only 2 service packs for each version of Access and then stops supporting the version even if new bugs are discovered?
- Why we can't easily install any version of Access (runtime) on any computer? There are problems if there's more than one version... it's been a problem for ages...
I am new to Access and learn visually, love the videos.
