Have a feedback for all the problems found

Submitted by Antonio on February 2, 2009 to Aesthetics, Annoyance, Bug, Icons, Legacy, Usability

The windows taskforce web page is great but the impact of suggestions we wrote would be harder if each submission will be sent to the windows team directly from seven. Otherwise there is the risk that all the problems will not find any acceptable solution.

A new tag - for exemple «already sent to technical support» - for each submission is required indicating that the problem has been forwarded to the windows team using the applet built inside seven.
